sake_story001.jpg

Shimane is hard to get to. It’s the second least populated prefecture in Japan. It is mountainous with most people living on the ocean plain. The mountains however are a great source of water for making sake.

Gassan, established in 1826, in Japanese means ‘Moon Mountain’ named after the Mount Gassan near the brewery. In 19th century, they used to brew sake for the local feudal lord which is a very honorary background of the brewery.
