Where is Japanese Sake From?

Where is Japanese sake from?

Although there are some sake breweries in America and Europe, let's be traditionalist and focus for now on the sake from Japan. There are a few prefectures especially famous for sake production such as Niigata, Hyogo, and Hiroshima. But in fact, all prefectures in Japan except Kagoshima produce sake (even tropical Okinawa). There used to be a distinct type of flavor per region, but in recent years production has become more and more diverse and now it has become difficult to pin down a distinct flavor per region. Rather, sake drinkers choose depending on individual brewer or for instance, pureness.
