Brewery located in Kanto
Ueno, Katsura-shi, Chiba
We have been producing sake in the Katsuura area of the Boso Peninsula since 1830. The temperate climate of the region pairs with the quality of the ingredients we use and the skills of our producers to create brews where each and every bottle is a testament to our ongoing pursuit of excellence.
We use a horizontal cave-cut well bequeathed to us by our ancestors to obtain the water used in the sake, with its source in natural waterways in the mountains. This natural and rich blessing of the mountain helps create a sake with umami, gentle mouthfeel, and mild lingering notes of sweetness.
In 2015, the brew took the Gold Medal at the All Japan New Sake Appraisal Conference and in the 45th Honorable Mention Award at the 2016 Southern Chief Brewers' Refined Sake Appraisal Conference, a testament to the accolades and reception it has gotten.
