Founded in 1717 (Kyoho 2), Edo period
300 years of history at the Shigemasu brewery
Each tile of the tiled roof shows the time they spent.
The kura tells you the story of the brewery's history as a sake brewery.
In the brewery, men who are inspired by sake and sake brewing use all their passion and skill to brew excellent sake.
The history of Shigemasu brewery begins when the founder Rokuroemon Takahashi opened a sake brewery in Yame, a rice-producing region.
Since then, the company has undergone various changes, including the foundation laid by Takekichi IX and the reorganisation into a company structure by Shigetaro X. We are now in our nineteenth generation.
We continue to make daily efforts to preserve and further develop the inherited techniques and to produce sake that is highly regarded by everyone.
All Shigemasu's koji rooms are made of cypress.
Wood has the advantage of absorbing moisture reasonably well.
Rather than using easy-to-clean stainless steel,
Shigemasu chose cypresses that need to be properly cared for.
By keeping up with the upkeep.
Craftsmanship sensitivity is also developed.
The temperature of each koji-buta can be checked by reading the QR code on the koji-buta. The fusion of craftsmanship and the latest technology has produced shigemasu quality.
