    Tosa Jizakeya is a shop specializing in local varieties of sake, housed in a building that resembles an old-style farmhouse and located near the Shimanto River in the Taisho District. It is unusual in that it has sold only local sake from Kochi Prefecture ever since its founding. This devotion to principle is reflected in the fact that the shop never sells sake from any other prefecture. It sells the products of sake brewers from all over Kochi Prefecture, such as Mutemuka, the home of the Taisho District’s famous Dabada Hiburi. In addition, it deals in rare, limited varieties that cannot be found anywhere else. Tosa Jizakeya also sells its merchandise over the internet, so that customers can have sake from Kochi Prefecture shipped to anywhere in Japan.

The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
