Bandai, Kobayashishuzo Honten, is located in a suburb of Fukuoka City, which is surrounded by an abundance of natural resources. From the founder, Sakugoro Kobayashi, through the CEO of today, Bandai has been cherished for their consistency in producing a genuinely good tasting sake. Although Bandai is a small-sized sakagura, we gently create hand made sake while maintaining our focus of using genuine, local material and technologies handed down throughout generations. Founded 1792 in Fukuoka, Japan. With over 200 years, Bandai has perfected their sake production by cultivating a flourishing natural environment blessed with freshwater reserves within Sangun Mountain. Yamada-Nishiki and Reiho are selected as the rice used during fermentation. Yamada-Nishiki is locally cultivated on Itoshima Peninsula, in Fukuoka prefecture. Bandai's strong preference for the usage of local raw ingredients is the reason its sake continues to win the hearts of the locals in Fukuoka.
