Urakasumi is brewed in Miyagi Prefecture in the Tohoku region.
Located 180 miles north of Tokyo, Urakasumi was founded in 1724 originally to serve sake to the gods of Shiogama Shrine, a national heritage with over 1000 years of history. Urakasumi is very particular about including regional characteristics in their sake making, using locally-produced rice in Miyagi prefecture, which is famous for high-quality table rice including "Sasanishiki" and "Hitomebore" brand. It is also their primary focus as a brewery located in the coastal region with one of the largest fish markets to make sake that pairs well with local seafood such as oysters and tuna.
