Blessed with fresh waters flowing directly from Hakusan, Komatsu’s soil is well-suited for rice cultivation. Furthermore, the relatively higher humidity also creates a suitable climate for fermentation. What does this mean? Yes, Komatsu is the perfect place for brewing sake!
From large-scale and old-time producers such as Kaetsu Brewery, to small and exclusive brewers such as Higashi Sake Brewing Company (that has been served to royalty!), not to mention innovative ventures such as Noguchi Naohiko Sake Research Institute that train a new generation of sophisticated brewers, Komatsu is certainly not short on award-winning sake producers. Why not do a sake-hopping tour around all of these breweries?
