Mukai Shuzō

prefecture: Kyoto

The Mukai Shuzō brewery was founded in 1754. Mukai Kuniko, the brewer (tōji) of Mukai Shuzō is one of the first female brewers in Japan. She is constantly experimenting with new types of sake, most of which are made in miniscule amounts. The brewery is right on the Japan Sea, in a picturesque village known for its unique boat garages (funaya), located right under the houses that stick out over the water. Mukai Shuzō is a strictly pure rice wine (junmaishu) brewery.
