Founded in Aichi Japan, Kunpeki Sake Brewery has a history of more than 100 years in sake brewing. It is located in Konan city. In this city, there are 3 sake breweries. They use the Kiso river’s underground flow water for brewing sake.

Their sake is conscientiously prepared and brewed in small batch. Every step of sake making is accomplished by united efforts of the whole family. The yeasts are carefully screened and selected, only the ones that are approved by their master brewer are used for brewing in their brewery.

In Konan, every year from the mid April to early May at the Mandaraji Park, Konan Wisteria Festival is held. Japanese wisteria mesmerize people by its mysterious beauty and fragrance. The wisteria pergolas set up in the park have around 60 wisterias from twelve species ranging from early to late bloomers, and visitors get to enjoy a variety of forms of wisterias, from brightly colored wisterias in purple, crimson, white and so on, and from long, elegant flower clusters to short, pretty wisterias.

If you are to come Japan from mid April to early May, why don’t you enjoy tunnels of wisteria in full bloom while drinking sake?
