Fine sake, long-cherished in the town of udatsu
The Udatsu no Agaru Machinami in Mino preserves the townscape of the Edo period, and many buildings with udatsu firewalls remain there. The town has prospered through the Japanese paper industry since olden times, and its handmade technique of Honmino-shi paper was registered as a piece of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage. In this town, there stands an old-established sake brewery that has been loved by the people since 1772. The sake brewery's name is Kosakashuzojo. Enjoying the weather and natural features ideal for brewing sake, the brewery uses the underflow water from Nagara River to produce many varieties of local sake, including their famous Hyakushun brand. Their original building still stands unchanged, and you will be able to see the udatsu of the Edo period here too. The shape of the gently arched roof is called mukuri, and has been designated as a piece of the nation's important cultural property. Why not delight the senses with tasty sake in the traditional ambience of an old town? Please visit us in Mino, a town of Japanese paper and udatsu.
