ASAHI SHUZO NIIGATA - NIIGATA PREFECTURE
The Asahi Shuzo sake brewery was founded in 1830 in an ideal location for sake production, Niigata, the region with the second largest number of breweries in Japan. The natural environment is rich and varied, an area surrounded by the Sea of Japan to the west and the mountains to the east. The Shinano River flows through the city, which is famous for its fireworks festival. The Asahi brewery has a production unit in the Koshiji region on the south-western side of the river. The Kubota series is certainly one of the most famous in Japan. It is made from Gohyakumangoko rice grown by the brewery itself through its agricultural company to make the most of the region's climate.
