Profile of the brewer

The Nakanishi family was originally engaged in business as a shipping agency, and in the third year of the Tenpo yera(1832) they started a sake brewery using rice collected as land tax from the territory of Tango Yura as a village headman (shoya).
Before the brewery rises Tango's Mt,Fuji,called Yuragatake,which is part of the Oezan Range.The water used in making sake at the brewery is sand-filtered"Fudo"mountain spring water from the Fudo fall,running halfway down the mountain.
Our major brand,Shuten Doji is named after the legendary ogre of Tango's Oezan mountains,because we use the Fudo mountain spring water from the Oezan Range when making sake.
We continue to brew our sake with distinctive mountain spring water combined with rice best suited for brewing sake,such as "Kyotoiwai"and"Gohyakumangoku," from the harsh climate of the Sea of Japan.



Philosophy of sake brewing

The Fudo mountain spring water used as the basis for brewing our sake has a mysterious power the can easily brew both sweet and bitter-flavored sake,although it is extremely soft.
It can be said that this is the essence of Shuten Doji,Kyoto's local brand. Furthermore,our chief brewer(toji) fully utilizes all the important conditions for sake brewing,such as high-quality rice grown in Kyoto and the harsh winter of the Sea of Japan,creating the delicious flavor of"Shuten Doji."



Message to our customers

The traditional method of Japanese sake making has been handed dowen generation to generation by sake brewers(kuraudo). No matter how much technorogy develops in the future, as far as we know the sake made by the hands of sake brewers is the best since the dawn of history. Shuten Doji, a Kyoto local brand, will continue to be brewed in the traditional way by chief brewers(toji). We will devote ourselves to protecting and making the most of water, nature's blessing, and will cherish the local people and rice and serve our customer with quality products.
