Industrial Tourism in Japan
Toyama Prefecture is known for the delicious kan-buri amberjack and firefly squid of Toyama Bay, as well as for the Northern Alps, towering some 3,000 meters high. Located to the west, one finds the Tonami Plains and Sankyo-no-Sato village, naturally beautiful and the source of top-quality rice and the pure, clean water of the Shogawa River's underground streams. It is here that you'll find the Wakatsuru Sake Brewery, where the perfect ingredients for excellent sake are all to be found.
Since its founding in 1862, Wakatsuru Sake Brewery has been focused on simply making better sake, and continues to do so.
