This historic brewery is located on the Tokaido Road where merchants and travelers often stayed due to Oi River floods. Using the Minami Alps soft water, they’ve paid particular attention to using quality ingredients, employing their own rice milling machine from three generations ago. Switching to producing all premium sake in 2002 and now in the seventh generation of ownership, they continue to please locals and visitors alike with their long-loved series.
