When visiting Izumibashi brewery, please enjoy a tasting of special selections from our line up of sake and liqueurs at Shuyu-Kan located inside the brewery grounds. The foundations of the Shuyu-kan facility date back to the Edo era ( 1603 – 1868 ), and is named after the founder of Izumibashi. Once used as a rice granary, the reformed building now provides a quite and comfortable environment for enjoying a relaxing afternoon during your visit. Sit and relax for a spell, as you taste our sake releases to find your favorites. Many of our shop patrons are local farmers and sake industry professionals so please feel free to enjoy a conversation over Izumibashi sake while making new friends and memories to cherish.
We invite you to purchase your favorites discovered during the visit.
Enjoy sake and views of the local country side.
Izumibashi is located among the rice fields called Ebinago-chi where you can enjoy seasonal views of local flora and fauna with a mountainous backdrop. In summer, and before harvest season please enjoy a leisurely stroll around the beautiful emerald green rice fields surrounding our brewery where we grow special rice varieties used in Sake brewing. We take great pride in preserving the natural balance within our fields to ensure nature thrives for everyone to enjoy.
In the late summer and Autumn seasons you will begin to see the Dragonflies which represent our brand and adorn our sake releases. We welcome you to enjoy a tasting of Izumibashi sake, while watching the rice sway and dragonflies as they dance upon the winds.
