Kakuboshi Brewery is located in the fishing port city of Kesennuma. For over a century, our sake has been loved by both locals and tourists. Our signature labels (brands) are Kinmonryougoku (金紋両國) and Mizutoriki (水鳥記).

During our brewery tour you can see the sake manufacturing process. Part of our sake brewery built in 1908 has been preserved and is still in use today. New brewery areas have been added on over the years. Our souvenir shop located next to the inner bay was built in 1945 but was completely destroyed by the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. The store was rebuilt in May 2016. It is certified as a national registered tangible cultural property.
