Kyoto-grown rice.
Sake used

Since sake brewing has long been popular in Kyoto Prefecture, original sake rice varieties with excellent sake brewing qualities have also been cultivated. Among them, "Celebration," a variety of rice suitable for sake brewing, was first cultivated in 1974, and although its production temporarily ceased, it was revived after its high quality was reaffirmed. We also offer sake made from rice grown in Kyoto, such as "Gohyakumangoku" and "Kyo no Kiraki".

About "Celebration" rice suitable for sake brewing

Ii Iwai, a variety of rice suitable for sake brewing produced in Kyoto Prefecture, is highly suited for ginjo-shu (ginjo-grade sake). It is difficult to cultivate and has been on the verge of extinction many times, but farmers and sake breweries continue to work hand in hand to produce Kyoto's own sake, supporting Kyoto's sake culture. Enjoy the taste and unique aroma of sake made from "Shuku," which has been highly regarded for its quality since its birth.

Uji tea, the origin of Japanese tea

Uji tea, which has developed along with the tea ceremony and chanoyu culture of Kyoto, is a blend of mainly tea leaves produced in Kyoto Prefecture and processed in Kyoto Prefecture. Among a wide variety of teas, this time we will offer either gyokuro, a high-grade tea that is carefully brewed at a low temperature of 40-60℃ to spread its deep flavor in the mouth, or matcha, which can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, including as-is, in dishes and confectionery.


By covering the tea leaves for 20 days or more when they are just beginning to sprout, the tea leaves suppress the production of catechins, which are bitter-tasting substances, and store an abundance of amino acids, which are components of flavor and sweetness. The highest quality tea is produced by steaming and drying the tender sprouts while rubbing them, and is characterized by its bright green color. After being brewed, the tea leaves can be eaten as is, with ponzu (Japanese citrus juice) and other seasonings.

About "Matcha

Matcha is made from "tencha," which is grown in a different way than sencha. After the sprouts are steamed, they are dried without rubbing, and the soft leaf pulp is ground into a powder using a tea mortar. Unlike regular tea leaves, the powdered form is consumed as is, so all the nutrients of the tea leaves can be taken in. Whisking makes the tea mellow and tastes great even for those who don't like bitterness.
