Originally founded in 1819, the brewery was completely destroyed by an air raid in 1945. This didn’t stop them though, and they were back at it until 1985 when there was a slump in sake sales. Never the ones to quit, the 12th generation brewer, Yasuhiro Harada, got back to brewing in 2005. Since then they’ve brewed only junmai sake using Yamadanishiki rice from Yamaguchi Prefecture. They aim to produce sake with alluring aroma and a fresh taste. For this reason the brewers work tirelessly year round creating their masterpieces.
