Established in 1689, this is one of the most historical breweries in its prefecture located in the north of Japan. Here, in one of Japan's most famous rice-producing prefectures, it snows frequently. The famous naturally-filtered water from melted snow gives the sake a special flavour. In this area, mostly full-bodied and sweet-tasting sakes are produced.
This brewery in the Tochigi prefecture has been in operation since 1848. The mineral spring water from Tochigi's forests and mountains plays an important part in the production of its unique sake. Most sake from this brewery is stored in its own cave. The low temperatures with high humidity give spirit and flavour to the sake.
This brewery is located in the south of Japan on Kyusyu Island, and has more than 300 years of history. It has a rice farm where its own organic Yamadanishiki (山田錦）, a much-celebrated premium sake rice, is made.
