Environment

The summers are cool and the winters can be extremely cold. Located in Okazaki City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, our brewery is surrounded by pristine nature and clean air. The outstanding climate and environment of our local area produces pure and unspoiled groundwater.

Water

Kanzui (“God’s water” in Japanese), the source of some of the softest water in Japan, flows directly from the mountain behind our brewery to our well. We use it in every step of the brewing process to produce an exceptionally smooth sake.

Season

The sake making process begins in early fall when the temperature starts to drop. Then the sake is slowly and carefully matured throughout the spring until the beginning of summer. The four seasons of Japan are distinct, and each plays an important role in producing the delicate and profound flavors of carefully brewed sake.
