Miyagi Prefecture

30 miles north of Sendai City in Miyagi, Ichinokura started in 1973 combining four local sake breweries. Their policy hasn’t changed since its inception that all brewing process must be done by hand. Sake brewing requires all human senses; physical involvement of touching, tasting and smelling in the production seems rather inefficient but they believe this is the only and most efficient way to brew high quality sake.
