When you are traveling in Japan, you may expect to have Sake don’t you?
Actually Nara is super duper Sake place in Japan. Nara is the birth place of Seishu (type of sake).
We can take you to Sake tasting if you would like?!?!
Nara has very old and traditional history. Nara is called “Koto” which is oldest capital kind of.
Also Nara is the birth place of Sake. Many years ago, Sake was born in Nara, Japan.
Especially about Seishu it is type of Sake.
A seishu is made from Japanese rice.
Seishu has to made by Japanese rice. And it has to be filtered within processing.
If it is unfiltered which may be called nama-zake(raw sake).
“Unfiltered is not type of Nama-Zake. I asked to person who work in Saka-gura. She said that Nama-zake meant no pasteurization while processing of sake. Which is called He-Ire (火入れ). When they do pasteurization they heat up sake with 65 – 70 degrees. And stop the fermentation about a Koubo.”
So Seishu and Sake are typically only made in Japan. Also it needs specific technique for making it. That’s why we love to drink a sake in Japan!!
Nara is such a saka-gura island in Japan.
I meant about saka-gura island is Nara has 28 saka-gura around Nara prefecture.
Saka = Sake
Gura = Brewery.
Saka-gura = 酒蔵
Nara has many Japanese sake brewery. They are all difference between each breweries. Each sake brewery has original & traditional technique, style and ideal taste.
