A toast to
your trip to Tokyo.
Since ancient times, it has been believed that sake has magical powers.
It is the power that connects gods and people.
Here in Asakusa, where the present and the past come together,
is a place that transcends the barriers of time,
the distance from gods, and the borders of nations.
Sense of Japan given by sake.
Kikkawa Jozo is a long-established sake brewery founded in 1917. It has been over 100 years since it was built in Godo, Isehara City. From the rice washing to the brewing water, all the sake made here is made with high-quality hard water pumped from the strata of Mount Oyama in Tanzawa. Mount Oyama in Tanzawa has been known since ancient times as a place of rain worship and is also called Afuri-yama (rainfall mountain).
Kikkawa Jozo's flagship sake brand, "Afuri," is brewed at the foot of Mount Oyama (Afuri-yama) in Tanzawa, and its underground stream is used as brewing water, so the characters for "Afuri" on the label were specially calligraphed by the Shinto priest of Oyama Afuri Shrine.
