Environment

The summers are cool while 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 produce pure and unspoiled groundwater.

Water

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

Season

The sake making process begins from early fall when the temperature begins 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 this is also an important factor that contributes to the delicate and profound flavors of carefully brewed Japanese sake.
