Yoshikawa-touji no Sato
Ours is a local sake carefully brewed with an emphasis on 'rice, water and technique'.
Yoshikawa-touji no Sato brews superb sake from rice grains harvested in a production area famous for its brewer's rice in Niigata Prefecture, using a traditional brewing techniques inherited from a number of craftsmen of the "hidden village of master brewers". We brew genuine sake from spring water of the beech forest at Mt. Okamidake, which is optimal for sake brewing. Yoshikawa-ku has the only sake brewer's school in Japan, the Sake Brewing Department of Yoshikawa Prefectural High School, which has been run for approx. 50 years.
