President’s Message

Welcome to our Cultivation Brewery: Izumibashi!
Sake starts with rice.With our firm belief that “sake starts with rice,” we at Izumibashi Sake Brewery are one of the rare “cultivation breweries” in Japan, working in and around Ebina City, where we grow and cultivate sake rice ourselves.We make our sake from the blessings of the sun and the earth, carefully cultivating sake rice you can trust. We strive for sake that feels good, surrounded by friends who come to Izumibashi to fill cups and commeriserate.
Another feature of our brewery is its location near the global metropolis of Tokyo. Here, we are the nearest cultivation brewery to the Capital, where luscious mountains, rivers and sky bless us, and our consumers, with a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. At our table (our in-house restaurant), guests can enjoy food and sake from local ingredients for our taste of our local culture, and Japan. We believe this is one of our calling.
We hope to see you at Izumibashi!

President of Izumibashi Sake Brewery Co., Ltd.

Sixth Master Brewer, Yuichi Hashiba
