About us


The Nihonshu is an online retailer for Japanese sakés. We specialize in selling very good and rare sakés from Japan’s small producers.
We ship our products from Japan directly to your doorstep.


Our team

  • Besides Japan, we lived in the U.S.A, Europe and different countries in Asia. We love traveling, fooding and drinking.
    During our stays, we realized that not so many people know about Japanese saké, called Nihonshu here in Japan.
    One of us, Mitsuru-san, is not only a certified sake professional with over 20 years of experience in Japan, but also a sushi chef.
    He will make sure to introduce you the best sakes Japan has to offer so you could enjoy it with your friends.

Our Mission

  • We are passionate about sake, and want to share the best sakes from Japan’s small producers with the world. Sake is rich and complex like wine, and yet, not so many people know about it mainly because of the language barrier. Our mission is to provide you the best sakés from small breweries and show you why sake should be recognized at its true value. We will constantly keep adding the best sakés in our catalogue and share with you blog articles about our experiences.

Thank you!
