Watanabe Sake Brewery is located in central Japan in a beautiful small town called Hida-Furukawa located in Gifu Prefecture.
Stroll past the traditional wooden merchant stalls and the white-walled storehouses, observe the carp swimming in the fresh flowing stream and it is here that they proudly produce their beloved sake.
The brewery is not big but the sake is world class! They are proud to make many people smile and touch their hearts.

Watanabe Sake Brewery is registered as a Tangible Cultural Property of Japan. The Watanabe family started the brewery in 1870. Since then we have carefully selected the ingredients and stuck to the time tested and traditional brewery techniques of our founders. Our sake is very much loved by the local Hida people as well our visitors from all over Japan and around the world. Mass production is not our style but we are stubbornly committed to our quality sake production.
