What to Expect

When you visit the Fushimi district, you surely come to like Sake! Why?
There are three reasons.
1: The best wine comes from good soils, while the best sake comes from crisp clean water. It takes 8 liters of water to make one liter of sake. This naturally purified spring water flows beneath the Fushimi Hill, making it an ideal location for sake brewing, since sake brewing requires an abundant supply of high quality water.
2: The techniques and tradition of sake brewing has been preserved for more than 1000 years in Fushimi, which is located near Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.
3: Leading sake breweries in Japan including Gekkeikan are based in Fushimi, and have been incorporating the latest technologies while transmitting Japanese food culture to the world.
