The Hachinohe brewery started in 1740 when the first-generation Komai Shozaburo left Omi Province (located in Shiga Prefecture along the western bank of Lake Biwa in the present day) for the land of Mutsu (Tohoku) to find a good place to produce sake. The brewery has since then followed his footsteps and has continued to make great sake for generations. Today, the eighth-generation Shozaburo produces an environmentally friendly, healthy, and delicious local brand of sake from Aomori Prefecture that uses rice grown in Aomori, the finest yeast, and clear spring water from the Kanisawa area in Hachinohe to perfect the brewing process.
