Koichi Saura, President
(13th generation of Saura family, owner of Urakasumi sake brewery)

Thank you for visiting the website of Urakasumi Sake Brewery, Saura Co., Ltd.

Our company was founded in 1724 when we first received a sake making licence. Since then we have been providing the sacred sake for the Shiogama Shrine, the most prestigious one in northern Japan with its history of more than 1,000 years.

Japanese sake is the fruit of a wonderful tradition that originated from our country's environment and its 2000 years of history. Moreover, its culture is still influencing deeply our daily lives.

Our motto: "A genuine sake brewed meticulously, delivered with professionalism" resumes well our method. The brewing process is made sincerely and with care to provide our customers the highest quality. They can then enjoy a sublime Japanese sake through its richness while experiencing its pleasant and comfortable feeling.

To maintain our reputation of a trusted brewery supported by its customers and its community, we will continue to devote ourselves to brewing the best quality sake and strive toward excellence.
