Kawabu Brewery is located approximately 12.4 miles (20 kilometers) from Ise Grand Shrine (Ise Jingu) which enshrines Japan’s highest-ranking deity. Its Hoko Sugi brand is named after the sacred spear-shaped tree that stands tall and grows with strength in the sanctity of Ise Jingu. The brewery, which was founded in 1857, is now run by its 8th generation owner.
Situated between two streams, the brewery is known for its yamahai brewing method using soft well water. They excel at making high-quality, great value sake, such as the futsu-shu that won the IWC Great Value Champion Sake 2020, which is a blend of the “fast brew” style (sokujo) sake and aged yamahai sake.
