Founding Genroku 2nd year

Hideyoshi (Suzuki Sake Brewery)

秀よし(鈴木酒造)

It is a sake brewery with a long history, founded in the second year of Genroku (1689). The tasteful appearance of the sake brewery, the skill and heart of sake brewing, and the many beautiful sakes that are brewed. Here is the essence of sake brewing, which is Akita's traditional culture and industry. We hope that more people will become fans of sake through our tour. With that in mind, we look forward to welcoming you.

The front door where you can feel the history

The story of the birth of Hideyoshi

In the early Edo period, there was Chobei, who runs an oil shop in Ise no Kuni (Mie Prefecture). Chobei's son, who grew up with the latest information gathered by travelers visiting Ise from all over the country, decided to move to the affluent Akita. The young man who entered Nagano Village (Nakasen Town) became a landowner after a lot of hard work. After that, it was the second year of Genroku that he started brewing sake by taking advantage of Nagano Village, which is blessed with rice and water. This is the birth of our brewery, which has a history of 317 years in Akita Prefecture.

Origin of the brand

During the Kaei era, when the name of our sake was "Hatsuarashi," the lord of the Akita domain, Satake, gathered the famous sake from the domain and competed for sake. Therefore, it was praised as superior to the traditional sake "Kiyomasa". The two meanings of "Toyotomi Hideyoshi" served by Kiyomasa Kato and "excellent and good" have been combined and appointed as "Hideyoshi" to this day. In the local area, we have received the same trust and patronage since the founding of Genroku.

Traditional sake brewing to convey to the present

Old brewery with history

The houses and sake breweries that were rebuilt in the first year of the Meiji era have a profound feeling and dignity that only those that have passed many years have. Inside the sake brewery, there is a huge "Wakama" for steaming rice and a fully lacquered "Sakabune" for squeezing sake. I can't believe that all the tools are in active use.

Works of art on display in the warehouse

Inside the brewery, there is a library brewery that houses the Suzuki family's collection, which has continued for 14 generations. He owns many brewery biographies and antique art, and also has donations from Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Nobunaga Oda. You can feel the depth of the history of the warehouse from the works of art.

Black-painted square-headed helmet

The gift from Nobunaga Oda to Hideyoshi Toyotomi was later given to him by the Satake clan, the lord of Kakunodate. A box-like head is placed on a helmet bowl with cowhide, and it seems that such a modified helmet was popular during the time of Oda Nobunaga.

Kanzashi

It has been carefully inherited as a tool for welcoming the Suzuki family's bride. It is made of gold work, and crystals and coral are used for decoration.

Ancient documents Komonjo

"Sake brewing record since the Genroku era" begins with this sentence. This sentence, "feel the changing seasons with your skin and sensibility, and start making sake when the time is ripe," expresses the essence of sake brewing and tells us that nature's activities are the path of all things. I am.
