About Sake Brewery

Founded in 1882 (Meiji 15), Tamura Sake Brewery is a sake brewery of the Tamura family that has been in Fussa Village, Tama District, Musashi Province, which is now Fussa City.
During the Edo period, the Tamura family served as village officials, such as village heads who manage general government affairs in Fussa Village.
The Tamura watershed that flows through the Tamura family site was taken from the adjacent Tamagawa aqueduct and used for local daily life and irrigation to irrigate the fields.
The famous sake “Kasen” that represents Tamura Sake Brewery is derived from the joy of getting subsoil water from the well on the premises that comes from Chichibu and Okutama. In 2008, the current head of the family, Hanjuro Tamura, succeeded to the name, and emulated the “enterprising spirit” of the Tamura family, and started to improve the quality of all brands of sake.
Starting with the masterpiece “Tamura”, they’re striving to make sake that captures the ages.
Following the family motto, “ Make carefully, sell carefully,” they continue to make sake that incorporates the spirit and ethos of the times.
