A sake brewery located in Yuki, a city known for its many old elegant looking Japanese-style storehouses. Buyu means valor, and as the name of this brewery implies, its sakes are characterized by a dry and strong flavor. Buyu uses water drawn from a 150 meter deep well on the brewery premises which is fed by underground water from the Kinu River system. Here you can buy fresh sakes obtainable no place else, like Buyu's daiginjo top quality sake and nama genshu raw undiluted sake. Visitors can also potentially tour the brewery with an advance inquiry. Each year, the brewery holds an event called Wakuwaku Time in which children help prepare rice for sake making; when they turn 20 years old, they are gifted with the sake made from this rice.
