    Mie Ise-shi Ujinakanokiricho 77-2
    "This brewery makes Iseman Shuzo's Okagesama, a sake whose name was inspired by the historic ""Okage-mairi"" mass pilgrimages to the Ise Jingu shrine in the Edo period. Situated in a town which grew up around the shrine and commanding a view of the lush cedar forest on its grounds, the brewery has a shop which sells seishu refined sakes, shochu distilled spirits, liqueurs, and more. The brewery's Ginjo Okagesama, made with underground water from the Isuzu River which flows through the Naiku inner shrine area of the Ise Jingu shrine, is an exquisite ginjo sake which balances dazzling aroma and flavor. Primarily made by hand and in limited quantities, it can only be purchased here at the brewery and at the company's shop in Iseshima. The back of the shop where customers enter is in fact the brewery itself, and it is known as the smallest sake brewery in Japan."
