Inaba Shuzo

Since its founding in 1867, our company has been brewing from fine rice and carefully selected spring water from Tsukuba. In order to maintain our consistently high quality, our sake is hand made under the care of a master brewer, without the use of machines. This dedication has been widely recognized, and about two to three years ago we began exporting overseas. Currently, it is enjoyed in four countries other than Japan. Tsukuba is home to many research institutes and we are always ready to explain the fermentation process of sake for our guests from overseas.
