Whisk together the miso, the mirin, and the sugar to make the sauce. Cook in medium heat for 4-5 minutes and until the ingredients are mixed together well. Gradually reduce the heat and add the bonito powder to the mixture.

Cut the eggplants in halves lengthwise and score criss-crosses to let the sauce get retained. Put the oven to 400 degree F and brush it with vegetable oil. Cook the eggplants well. Take them off the oven and souse them liberally with the sauce.

Before serving, sprinkle the preparation with sesame seeds.
