Akita has long been one of the nation's leading rice producers, and ``Akita is the country of rice, but also of sake.'' Akita is truly a ``kingdom of fine sake'' that stands out in terms of both the production and consumption of sake.
The sake brewing industry has a long history, and the oldest sake brewery in the prefecture is Hiraizumi in Nikaho City, which was founded in 1487, and is known as the third oldest sake brewery in the country. Records show that in 1726, there were 833 sake breweries.
Why not learn about Akita's sake, which was born in the rich environment of the natural climate, through an experience that includes a tasting where you can learn directly from a sake brewer who was born and raised in the area?
