Noto’s sake Honjozo “Hatsuzakura”

This is the sake for everyday drinking. This sake is such that people find delicious even after several cups. It is refreshing and very rich in taste, not too sweet and not too dry.
This is the top-selling sake in our brewery. As a whole, 99% of this sake is consumed locally within Suzu City, 60% of which is consumed within Takojima area. This is truly local sake, or “jizake” in Japanese. We cannot be happier when our local customers say “For everyday drinking, this is the only sake I take. Other sake does not suit my taste.” Such comments make us feel good and proud of what we are doing, making sake. Again, we are truly thankful to our local customers in Takojima. We hope to continue making the same delicious sake for a long time so that the children will be able to enjoy the very same sake that their father enjoyed when they grow up.

Mobile Sake “Hatsuzakura”

Because ‘cup sake’ has become popular again, we revived our cup sake which we had stopped producing for a long time.
We named it “Mobile Sake” because we want you to take it with you when you go traveling or on a business trip and enjoy it at your destination.
