Takeda Shuzouten Inc.
For over 150 years since the end of the Tokugawa period, our ancestral brewing and sake have been handed down to us here in the Joetsu region.
We are truly a small family brewery. Still, we have never cut corners in our sake brewing. Consequently, our brewed sake has not only been highly praised at domestic tasting-parties, but has received Grand Awards twice in a Japanese sake competition that is said to be the most difficult in the world to win.
For a limited time from December through February, our “Kura”(Sake breweries) are open to visitor tours. We want every guest to witness our brewing process behind our world class sake brand ”katafune”, and visit our sake shop where in-store sakes are sold throughout the year.
