Brewery Information

Iwase Shuzo -Chiba-

Brewery located in Kanto

The brewery is believed to have been founded in 1723 and was operated as a sideline over the generations.

Iwanoi gets its name from the Japanese phrase for the "Iwase well". 80% or more of SAKE is water. In this way, it is essential to proper SAKE production. Since ancient times to the present, this source has been watched over by the Water God.

In the Taisho era (1912-1926), the brewery began focusing intensively on SAKE, and in 1947 it was appointed chair of the All-Japan Refined SAKE Awards. The current owner is the 11th-generation heir.

One of the former heads of the brewery was also a photographer who, since pre-war times, steadfastly shot the female divers of Japan as his subject, receiving the Prime Minister's award at a photo exhibit hosted by the Mainichi Newspapers. (Signature work: Ama Divers)

The beams of this traditional thatched-roof dwelling are taken from the mast of the San Francisco, the ship of Rodrigo de Vivero, who shipwrecked in the Onjuku-oki in 1609. This galleon ran aground in Onjuku, with numerous members of crew drifting ashore. The ship, captained by Don Rodrigo de Vivero, who had just concluded a governorship in the Philippines, had 373 crew members and was en route to Nueva España (former Spain-occupied Mexico). Though fifty-six perished, the remaining 317 members were rescued by the villagers of Iwada (present-day Onjuku-cho). The villagers sympathized with the shipwrecked crew, and the skin divers warmed the refugees up with their own two hands. They lent their husbands’ clothing and were unsparing in supplies of food. This act led to a treaty of amity between Spain and Japan.

Today, 400 years have passed since the era of Tokugawa Ieyasu.
