Hatsukame Brewery

Established in 1636 during the Kanei era, Shizuoka Prefecture's oldest sake brewery earned notoriety throughout Japan in 1967, when its sake was awarded a large number of gold medals at a prestigious ceremony. Particularly noteworthy is the "Junmai Daiginjo Kame," a high-end local sake renowned for its exceptional quality and steep cost, even today. The region is now recognized as the "Ginjo Kingdom."
