Hiroshima has all three conditions necessary for sake brewing: rice, water, and climate. It is a famous brewery with more than 50 breweries scattered in the prefecture. Tastes vary depending on the area where they are built, so let’s look for your favorite one while walking around the land. We also recommend wineries that have locally produced wines that go well with Hiroshima gourmets.

Let's start on a trip to find one of our favorites!

Saijo in Higashihiroshima is one of the most famous breweries in Japan. The white walls and red brick chimneys are impressive on Sakagura-dori. The tasteful cityscape gives you a sense of history as a city of sake. You can choose rare items such as brands and limited brews that are not widely distributed outside the local area, or you can dare to choose alcoholic beverages that are “usually drunk” by local drinkers. Since there are seven breweries in Saijo alone, it is also a pleasure to travel to worry about which brand to buy.

In the northeastern part of Hiroshima prefecture, where fruit cultivation has been popular since ancient times, local wines are produced that take advantage of the characteristics of climate and topography. In particular, natural noble rot wine produced from the weather conditions peculiar to Miyoshi, which is famous for the “Sea of Misty”, is a rare and valuable gem that is hard to see.
