KITAKATA | Ohara Shuzō Sake Brewery has been making use of Kitakata’s famous high quality water and rice, and appropriate climate to brew sake since 1717. The brewery uses a combination of traditional and modern techniques to produce its sake, and does so in a beautiful historical warehouse which was built more than 280 years ago in the Edo Period.

Ohara Shuzō produce a range of tasty sake, many of which you can try on site. The most famous of the lot is “Kurashikku”, which has been made since 1989, and sees unrefined sake being matured to the sounds of Mozart. The brewery experimented with various types of classical music, jazz, and enka (Japanese ballads) before deciding that Mozart, in particular “Symphony 41” and “Piano Concerto 20”, resulted in sake with the desired richness of flavour. Although there is no research data to back up the claim that Mozart’s music has any effect on sake, there’s no doubting that the end result is delicious, rich, and smooth.

Ohara Shuzō is open every day of the year except New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and if you’d like a tour of the brewery, no reservation is required before you visit.
