Nishioka shuzo - 西岡酒造


Nishioka shuzo (brewery) is located in Kure, Nakatosa Town, in Kochi Prefecture and was founded in 1781! The brewery is a rarity in modern sake production terms, producing only small quantities at a time which ensures quality in every bottle.

For the past 240 years, Nishioka brewery has polished and mastered its dry sake brewing techniques despite the warm and wet climate of southern Japan.

Fumimoto shuzo - 文本酒造


Fumimoto sake brewery was founded in 1903 and its signature brand is Momotaro, created in 1966, the name is from a hero in Japanese folklore.

Usually, the sakes produced in Tosa are dry but Momotaro’s sakes are a little bit sweet compared with the other sakes. They are best served cold and it’s so easy to drink that you should be careful not to end up drinking too much.

Kensuke Fumimoto is the master brewer from the 4th generation and devotes himself to making Momotaro sakes.

Momotaro sakes are produced in small quantities and are loved by the young generations as well as the elder generations.
