Where to Go

There are several regions in Japan renowned for their sake brewing. The mountainous region of Niigata, north of Tokyo, is considered by some to be the center of Japan’s sake production. The Shinano River has resulted in exceptionally fertile rice cultivation. Even farther north, Aomori is another well-known region for sake brewing, where the combination of cold temperatures, pure water and high-quality rice provide optimal conditions for perfect sake brewing.
