About the Producer

Established in Hokkaido in 1661, Otokoyama sake has been cherished by many historical figures in Japan since the Edo era (1603-1867). The brewery was so well known that famous ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) artist Kitagawa Utamaro created artwork depicting their sake. His work is on display at the Otokoyama Sake Brewery Museum, which features the history of the brewery and the steps of sake production. Otokoyama has won gold medals in many competitions. The water used for their sake comes from the perpetual snows of Mt. Daisetsuzan; Hokkaido, at the northernmost tip of Japan, is known for its severe, cold climate.
