“Tenkawa” is named after Tenkawa Shrine, god of entertainment and performing arts. It has a rich, enticing aroma that makes you want to dance followed by a sharp, dry quality with an intriguing umami touch. A longer than usual fermentation time helps them achieve the emphasis on umami, to pair well with their local dishes which are rich and saucy. Might just send you into song.
