Yakehashiri lava flows
Our brewery is at the foot of Mt. Iwate.
Mt. Iwate is active volcano whose last eruption took place in 1732.
In Mt. Iwate, There is vacant space prduced by lava flows called Yakehashiri lava flows. The area is 150 ha. the landscape is phenomenal. Black cold lava flows cover as far as the eye can see.
Our mother water came from here. The water that fall in the Mt. Iwate pass through the ground and cold lava flows. And it take many decades to come below our brewery. So our mother water is moderately hard, contain rich minerals. This wateris good water, and the core of our sake.
We think that local products in hachimantai for instance rice, buckwheat, vegetables, animal products and Sake are all good because they are made from this water.

A Happy New Year!
