This sake was revived in 1975 using a recipe contained in an ancient local document as its base. It is said that travelers would drink this sake to warm themselves after crossing the cold waters of the Oi River. You can enjoy this sake’s subtle, sweet aroma without any river crossing. This aroma fades into fruity and floral flavors that become more dry as it goes down.

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 ownership, they continue to please locals and visitors alike with their long loved series.
