Blessed with the fresh spring waters flowing from Mt. Hakusan, Komatsu’s soil is well-suited for rice cultivation. Add to that the humidity, that creates a suitable climate for fermentation. What does this mean? Yes, Komatsu is the perfect place for brewing sake!
From large businesses with a long history such as Kaetsu Brewery, to small and exclusive brewers such as Higashi Sake Brewing Company (with many international awards under their belt), not to mention innovators such as the Noguchi Naohiko Sake Research Institute, training a new generation of brewers, Komatsu is certainly not short on award-winning sake producers. Why not do a sake-hopping tour around all of these breweries?
