About Sake Brewery

Founded in 1804 (Bunka 1st), Nakamura Sake Brewery is located in the Akigawa River basin, which flows through the western part of the Tama region.
Nakamura Sake Brewery’s representative sake “Chiyozuru” is derived from an auspicious event when a crane flew over the Akigawa River basin long ago.
We use natural water pumped up from 170m underground for our sake.
The storehouse is divided into an earthen storehouse built in the Edo period and a modern storehouse that is kept below 8°C throughout the year.
The first condition for sake brewing is to use Rice suitable for sake brewing that has been polished and polished.
The brewing process retains many of the old-fashioned hand-made processes, and combines modern technology such as automatic koji-making machines.
We make full use of old and new breweries and techniques to brew sake that is light yet has the natural flavor of rice.
