"Crisp with fine bubbles. Aromas of pear and green apple."

The Niizawa Brewery

"Our current toji took over the role of toji from President Iwao Niizawa at the age of 22. She took over within 3 years of joining the brewery. (At the time, she was the youngest female toji in Japan.) *Toji – The person in charge of the brewing process at the sake brewery is called Toji.
Rather than brewing in a strict top-down hierarchical environment, where a veteran toji dictates the brewing process, our kurabito (brewers) collaborate, learn from, and inspire each other daily. Therefore, they share their opinions and cooperate in sake brewing regardless of age, background, or gender. This environment, focused on collective growth, ensures that we are constantly pursuing the best sake."
