interesting... I've never heard of this, but maybe it's a method for making homemade Japanese pickles - tsukemono.  I think tsukemono are usually made from raw vegetables, but maybe this is a short cut to start with "sour pickles" and soak them in soy sauce. If I were going to try this, I'd avoid the usual cucumber pickles and get a jar if Italian-style mixed vegetable pickles, that include cauliflower and carrots and stuff.  Or I'd just buy some tsukemono from an Asian market  ;) and eat it with hot rice, which, as the recipe says, is really delicious.
