Amami Oshima Nishikawa Shochu Distillery(株)奄美大島にしかわ酒造

Sake Brewery

"This brewery is located in Shirai, Tokunoshima Town, and is surrounded by abundant water and sugar cane fields in an idyllic countryside area. The main ingredient is pure brown sugar, and their mainstay product is ""Shima no Napoleon"" filled with natural spring water. There are also a variety of other brands such as Mikado, aged over a long period of time, as well as plum wine using brown sugar shochu that is rare even in Japan. The young Touji (master brewer), who has inherited the traditional manufacturing method using natural water that flows against hard bedrock containing coral reefs on Tokunoshima, the island of longevity, and select brown sugar, makes the flavor deeper and easier to drink."

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
