About Taiwagura Brewery
Miyagi is one of the leading rice production areas in Japan. The brewery was established about 20 years ago in the center of the prefecture inside Kurokawa district’s Taiwa town, an area blessed by pure water from the Funagata mountain range. Taiwagura Brewery makes more than 30 types of sake, including junmai and ginjo varieties. Our goal is to produce the best sake possible for as many sake fans as we can. To make that dream a reality, we have one of the most modern facilities in Tohoku. As a result, most of our operations is mechanized, which saves a lot of labor and allows us to produce high-quality sake with less than half the staff. We ship our delicious sake throughout Japan. We hope you will fall in love with our sake during your visit as well.

The soul of sake is created by experience, knowledge, and intuition of brewers. We use the latest technology, but we still incorporate traditional sake brewing techniques. We believe this fusion of traditional know-how and modern technology will create sake that can be enjoyed by everyone.

* Below is a video (YouTube) for entertainment and background knowledge. You can’t see this "sake making song" during the tour.

Inside Taiwagura Brewery you can view a continuous rice steamer, which is rare in Miyagi prefecture. Also, you can see rice transported in an instant via air shooter into the storage tanks. Although technology is convenient, it does not mean that everything should be mechanized to save labor. We are a hybrid brewery which relies on machines while also incorporating traditional techniques and knowledge.
