In order to help sustain the environment, they implemented the ISO14000 system with environmental sustainability. They also participate in various activities to preserve their natural surroundings. Additionally, they hold tea ceremonies, concerts, and cultural events for the local community. The goal is to make a fun, sustainable, and ultimately enjoyable environment with sake.
