Experience Details

This local sake brewery is famous for their “sotenden” sake, which is made using the local water and rice from Kesennuma. You’ll enjoy a tasting of a variety of fine sake products, and receive a small bottle of sake to take home with you as a Kesennuma souvenir! Following the sake brewery tour, you will visit a local sushi restaurant where you can enjoy a tasting with a sake and sushi pairing, matching various types of sake with seasonal sushi dishes. During this sake tasting and sushi pairing session, you’ll learn all about how sake is made, but also how this brewery in Kesennuma got back on its feet in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Since the disaster, this Kesennuma sake brewery has pulled it together to continue its delicious legacy of over 100 years of sake-brewing. Since then, it’s become a multi-award-winning brewery, and has continued to be shaped by the local community and sake makers. This sake brewery has long been dedicated to the craftsmanship and technical skills involved in sake brewing, and also represents the resilience found in the fighting spirit of the people who make this delicious Japanese sake. With a long tradition of sake brewing with local and high-quality ingredients, their brewing expertise has been bottled in their 3 main sake specialty styles. Enjoyed at home, at local restaurants, or during special occasions, this sake from Miyagi Prefecture is absolutely top shelf!

Experience Location

Kesennuma is a stunning city on the Sanriku Coast in Miyagi Prefecture with abundant fishing grounds. Visitors can appreciate its natural beauty and resources by indulging in fresh seafood, climbing Mt. Anba, or kayaking in the sea. One of the largest fishing ports in the Tohoku region, Kesennuma was hit hard by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, a disaster that devastated the local economy and forced many residents to leave and find job opportunities elsewhere. Now, Kesennuma has bounced back with a revitalized local economy and a mission to make the fishing industry more sustainable.
