Using an egg piercer, punch a hole at the bottom of the eggs.
Place eggs into a straining basket.

After the timer finishes, take the eggs out and drop them into a large bowl with ice water.
Peel the egg shell. Marinate them with Sho-yu tare, 100g of water and kombu for at least 24 hours in a tight tupperware or food container.
