Greetings from the president.

Okitama Basin not only has a fabulous view of the Azuma mountain range, but it also has a clear atmosphere, severe winter cold, and clean and rich water, making it the most suitable place for sake brewing. Rice cultivation is also prosperous in the rich land. It has been known as a famous brewery for a long time, producing a number of high-quality brewer's rice.

Our company was founded when Eiji, the 6th generation of our family, took over the sake brewing department of Sakataya Riemon, a local merchant who had gained privileges from the lord in the Yonezawahan MIyauchi district during the Edo period. Ever since, we have continued to study brewing techniques while preserving old traditions.

"Azuma No Fumoto" is a sake brewed carefully by polishing carefully selected brewer's rice. We will pursue quality-oriented sake brewing so that "Azuma No Fumoto" continues to satisfies people's hearts.

We appreciate your continued support.
