Tenzan Shuzo Sake Brewery
The Gion River, which flows in front of the sake brewery, is a clear stream that collects water from the Tianshan Mountains. Similarly, “Kiyomizu Waterfall”, where underground water flows down, has been selected as one of the 100 best water resources. This water is medium hard water that has no iron and contains a lot of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. It is the ideal water for sake brewing. About 90% of the rice used by the brewery is locally produced in Saga Prefecture, the brewery mainly uses Yamada Nishiki and Saga no Hana rice which makes the unique taste of the sake.

Saga Sake Breweries
Saga Prefecture is located on the island of Kyushu. It borders Fukuoka Prefecture to the northeast and Nagasaki Prefecture to the southwest. Sake and shochu made from rice and wheat from the prefecture. Re-focusing on the ingredients is a movement to search for the original local sake rooted in the region, and it should lead to a re-examination of the local food culture. In order to deliver excellent quality products using 100% Saga raw materials to consumers, a unified mark (“Saga Prefecture Origin Name Management System”) stating that it is certified by the Saga Prefecture Origin Name Management Committee is displayed on the certified products. Targeted on sake (junmaishu) and shochu (genuine shochu), the committee rigorously examined and certified in terms of quality such as taste and aroma. With the start of the “Origin Name Management System” this time, it will be a great opportunity to show the presence of Saga Prefecture as a place for sake and let consumers know that they comply with the certification standards, the production areas, water sampling areas, production areas, etc.
