Its smooth taste and alcohol content have a feeling of volume giving it a special depth. Its astringent acidity stays for a long time, making a dignified, elegant impression. It is a highly mature Japanese sake with a depth that is full of flavor.

The astringent acidity matches spicy dishes. In addition, the umami of seafood and the deep taste of sake produced by kimoto method brewing style, greatly enhance the umami of the ingredients that come after the spiciness, enhancing the overall taste of the dish.
Fujii shuzo was established In 1863 by their ancestor Zenshichi I in Takehara, geographical area with clean water, a place has estimated ideal for brewing Sake.
Takehara,Hiroshima prefecture standing in front of a calm sea Setouchi is a wonderful site which, in the past, has had its share of prosperity thanks to the salt production industry. Otherwise known as "Little Kyoto of Aki" (Aki, is the former name of the geographical area including Takehara), this site still retains an old-world landscape with its magnificent array of traditional houses and historic temples.
Takehara has such a pure aquatic resource that groundwater is still used as common as water. It also has a rich resource of seafood that has allowed him to create a rich cultural heritage of cuisine. For over 150 years we manufacture Sake with these benefits of Nature.
【Fujii family's Philoshy】
Sake is not made by humans, it is created by nature. Here is the basic concept of Fujii’s manufactruring.
Man strives to benefit the ower of nature to the fullest.
By deploying all the resources of our intelligence, it is closer to the creative force of nature.
That said, Fujii would like to present some key points of their traditional brewing sake.
1.All sake is Junmai type.
Sake is made exclusively by rice and yeast.
2.Complete fermentation: Maximize the power of life in nature
Complete fermentation is the process of converting the sugar in rice Koji into alcohol which continues to be active until the last moment when sake yeast finishes its mission. For complete fermentation, it is necessary to make koji, which is a nutrient source for sake yeast, and to perform careful work from the stage of processing the raw materials. The sake produced after complete fermentation has a mellow taste, a refreshing taste that you won't get tired of drinking, and a light aftertaste. We try to make sake by this complete fermentation regardless of the rank of sake.
