Masuya Rihei

I went around in Saitama prefecture to visit several sake breweries in November as I described in a past article (please see Sake Brewery Stamp Rally). Yao Honten is among the breweries I visited at that time, and I bought the sake "Masuya Rihei" there.

This sake is of my favorite type with a dry and clean-cut but full-bodied taste. The soft ginjo bouquet is pleasant. It is also good to enjoy this sake after heating it lukewarmly.

Actually, I recently learned that Saitama prefecture produces 13,000 kilo litters of sake annually, and this amount exceeds those of Nagano and Yamanashi prefectures. Speaking of sake breweries in Saitama prefecture, for several years, I have been fan of Igarashi Syuzou, which is making Tenranzan, and Koedo-Kagamiyama Syuzou, which is brewing Kagamiyama. Recently, I found another favorite, Biwa-no-Sasanami from Asahara Syuzou.

Saitama is a next prefecture to Tokyo, and I want to visit different more breweries in Saitama next year.
