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

During our brewery tour you can observe the sake manufacturing process (November to early April). Part of our sake brewery built in 1908 has been preserved and is still in use today, as adjacent structures have been added on over the years. Our sales gift 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. It was rebuilt in May 2016. The store building is certified as a national registered tangible cultural property.
