Hiroshima Prefecture

The Imadashuzo Hoten brewery is located in the region of Hiroshima, facing Setonaïkaï sea, a zone with a moderate climate and known for its soft water (nasui). This water is therefore very difficult to use when making sake and the producers in Hiroshima have had to make constant efforts to become a important region in sake world.
A Imadashuzo, the Toji who officiates is a woman, which is rather rare in the sake industry. She experiments a lot, especially by taking old methods and making them more modern, like "funeshibori", the filtering is done in wooden tubs through canvas bags. She also uses ancient rice strains such as Hattanso, the ancestor of Hattanishiki.
