Ichinokura

Miyagi Prefecture

30 miles north of Sendai city in Miyagi, Ichinokura started in 1973 combining 4 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.
