Imada - Hiroshima

Seto Inland Sea

Seto Inland Sea

Located on a seaside town next to the inland sea of Seto island is the well known Imada Brewery. The village Akitsu is famous in Japan as being known as the birthplace of ‘ginjo’ nihonshu. As well as that this area is famous for the pioneering of using soft water for the production of sake. Hard water allows vigorous fermentation and tends to higher alcohol sake whereas soft water is essential for slow and low temperature fermentation (ginjo sake making).
