Notes : -

Sequence of seasoning :- water, sugar, mirin, sake then ginger and fish
Adding soy sauce in two batches is because first batch will give taste to the dish while the second batch will give it aroma.

Alternative method

Halve the water to 150ml
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Mirin
2 tbsp Sake
1.5 tbsp sugar
Add in 2 tbsp miso into simmering soup after the seasoning and fish are added and simmer until cooked
