What makes Fukuju special?
The Fukuju brewery is situated in the Nada region of Kobe, Japan, near Rokko Mountain, which brings good fortune to our craft of making sake. Extreme temperature swings on the north side of the mountain are ideal for growing our sake rice. Cold winds blowing down the south side are perfect to slow the fermentation process, which means better-controlled brewing for richer, smoother taste. Local mountain streams supply naturally pure water (Miyamizu) with just the right mineral content. It is with these basic ingredients that we have been making our signature sake for over 266 years.
The brewery property includes a courtyard surrounded by the main plant that houses a brewing facility, a Japanese restaurant focusing on fine cuisine complemented by our own fine sake, a shop offering sake and tableware as well as a wooden brewery hall which presents a wide range of entertainment.
