In 2018, Japanese sake from Fukushima Prefecture won the most gold prizes at the Japan Sake Awards for a record-breaking 6th year in a row.

In Fukushima, there are 50 Sakagura (sake breweries), where Sake has been made by inherited skills and continual improvements. Fukushima is also the production area for various kinds of sake ingredients.
Embedding these natural surroundings, the brewers of Fukushima try to get a great Sake with high dimensions and diversity. Fukushima’s natural beauty, quality ingredients, and traditional techniques combine to create the world’s best sake.
