Kamisugi Shuzo | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Mikawa-Anjo Station 

[Kamisugi Shuzo]

A brewery that makes Aichi's local sake using rice produced locally

The brewery plants sake rice with the local producers, and after harvest, polishes them 100% in-house using a rice huller exclusively for making sake. They use natural underground water which springs out from the well in the premises to wash and prepare the rice for making sake. The brewery is very particular about the rice and water used. Taste the daiginjoshu and freshly made namazake (only available during the sake-brewing period) enjoy the rich taste and aroma that fills your mouth. You can see how sake is make on a brewery tour (reservation required).
