Brewery Information

Matsui Shuzo

Brewery located in Kinki

Yoshida Kawaracho, Sakyo-ku Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Founded in 1726, Matsui is the original brewery of Kagura and Fuji Chitose, the choice sakes of the imperial capital. This brewery abundant in natural scenery lies between the 36 Higashiyama mountains and the Kamo River, with views of Kyoto Imperial Palace and Shimogamo Shrine to the west and Daimonji-yama to the east. Brewing operations were suspended for an extended period due to urban renewal nearby, but the brewery reopened in 2009 and sake production was started again. Matsui has boldly adopting new techniques for making better sake, and 60% of its electricity requirements is provided by solar energy.On the other hand, it is rare to find a brewery that has this level of hands-on involvement in the brewing process, with every aspect of production all the way to bottling carried out by the brewery staff themselves. Aiming to fuse tradition and innovation in sake brewing, 300-plus years since its founding, today 15th generation Shigeki Matsui leads operations as overseer and chief brewer.
