Sake Brewed in an Old Castle Town for the Next 100 Years

Hirosaki City in Aomori Prefecture, a city of cherry blossoms and apples, was one of the first cities in Japan to be established under the country’s new legal code.
It is in this city that our brewery is located, situated to the west of Hirosaki Castle, which was constructed more than 400 years ago, at a location that is watched over by the stately Mt. Iwaki, also known as the Mt. Fuji of the Tsugaru region.

Here, amidst the everlasting splendor of Shirakami-Sanchi, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, we are embarking on our new sake-making journey: to produce delicious and safe sake as a pure rice brewery without any added brewer’s alcohol, using the subterranean waters that flow from Mt. Iwaki—the pride of Tsugaru— and rice that is optimally grown for sake brewing in the rich natural environment of Aomori.

Even now, over 100 years after our establishment, we aim to prepare sake that is as fresh as a pine tree’s green buds and as robust as its trunk.
Our sake shares a long history with Hirosaki’s old castle, and our goal is to ensure that it remains a beloved brand for the next 100 years.

Rokkon
In the Heart Sutra, the legendary Buddhist monk Xuanzang describes gokon,
which are the five aspects (or senses) of human experience.
Fully utilizing these five senses requires inspiration of the heart - the sixth sense.
It is written that only with rokkon (six senses) are we truly able to know reality
as well as recognize and appreciate authenticity.

An expressive sake prepared with heart and soul that you can truly feel.
This sake was given the name Rokkon.
