At the G7 Summit Hiroshima, wine, sake, whiskey, etc. mainly from Hiroshima prefecture were offered during working lunches and dinners as part of hospitality.
On this page, we will introduce local sake recommended by the HIT editorial department among them!

It is Japanese sake made in Takehara, which is blessed with good quality water. The brewery located in the “Takehara Townscape Preservation District,” also known as the Little Kyoto of Aki, has opened up that corner as a communication space full of emotion, and there are not only free tasting corners and alcoholic beverages unique to the brewery, but also souvenirs such as carefully handmade miscellaneous goods.

Offered Japanese sake [Junmai Daiginjo Hiroshima Nishiki/Daiginjo Gold Kamo Tsurukaku bottle]
It is Japanese sake made by the brewery “Kamotsuru Brewery,” which pioneered daiginjo brewing. They continue to create traditional flavors that are particular about quality, such as receiving numerous awards at the National Shinshu Kanpyokai. The traditional white-walled brewery still manufactures high-class sake such as daiginjo, etc., and there are also tour room direct sales offices that have been renovated from some breweries.
