There is darker Miso, also known as Red Miso, which is primarily available in the northern region of Japan, and there is Shiro Miso, or White Miso, which is more popular in the southern regions of Japan, including Kyoto and Osaka. Shiro Miso is sweeter than Aka Miso, and there is also Awase Miso, which is mix of Red Miso and White Miso.
