Tomita Brewing Company

Tomita Brewing Company came into being in 1534, and has been brewing sake using the same groundwater source since! The company’s brand Shichi Hon Yari, meaning “seven spears,” is named for seven great warlords who fought in a major battle on Shizugatake, the mountain near the brewery. Now into its 15th generation, Tomita Brewing Company’s current president Yasunobu Tomita visited wineries and breweries in the United States and Europe before training in sake brewing. This has allowed him to understand the value of local commitment and just how special it is to have truly locally brewed sake.
