We will guide you around a total of 45 minutes, which includes a brewery tour (about 30 minutes) and sake tasting (15 minutes). At our brewery, you can learn about the sake brewing process while seeing the traditional architecture and tools that have been used for many years.
In 1618, when a road was being constructed between the Yoshioka and Nanakita post stations along the Oshu Kaido highway, the Uchigasaki family forefather, Oribe Uchigasaki, helped to establish Tomiya as a post town by the order of Sendai’ s founding lord, Masamune Date.
The second master of our family, Sakuemon Uchigasaki, launched the sake brewery in 1661. Since then we have been brewing our brand of sake for over 350 years. Our company is the oldest brewery in Miyagi prefecture. We brew traditional handmade sake with an eye on freshness and taste.
Come stop by while walking around the former Tomiya post town, which has a history that has continued since Edo period. Learn about the secret taste of our signature brand “Hoyo,” which is highly evaluated not only in Japan but also overseas.
