Home made dashi is the best it's Kombu seaweed, and bonito flakes simmered and strained.

However the instant "Aji Dashi" is just fine and is what most of the mid-class Japanese resturants use. It's comes closer to the real home made than say instant beef or chicken stock.

@ Pierino ;) It's the Japanese version of "chicken soup!"

And dashi is a damn fine thing to have on hand in your pantry for quick soups.

Tsuyu is a dipping sauce made of mirin, soy sauce and dashi. Dashi is a fish stock made using seaweed, bonito flakes, and water.
