Aspergillus oryzae, called “Koji:kōji” in Japanese, is a filamentous fungus (a mold) used in Chinese and other East Asian cuisines to ferment soybeans for making soy sauce and fermented bean paste, and also to saccharify rice, other grains, and potatoes in the making of alcoholic beverages such as huangjiu, sake, makgeolli, and shōchū. The domestication of A. oryzae occurred at least 2000 years ago. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspergillus_oryzae)
In these days, Japanese people used to call Koji only for the “Aspergillus-oryzae on steamed rice”, and made a new KANJI “糀” for named them. Koji is using for some Sake, Miso, Soy-sause, Ama-sake or Japanese Pickles for ferment and UMAMI taste.
