Toyama Sake and Kamaboko Fair

“Toyama” means “rich with mountains” and the city offers stunning views of the 3,000 meter crest of the Northern Japan Alps from its picture perfect location on the Sea of Japan, only 250 km northwest of Tokyo.

Toyama Sake

Water is an essential ingredient which plays a key role in the brewing of sake. Toyama is blessed with an abundance of pristine, clear water, making it the perfect place for sake brewing. In addition, Toyama is also a fertile land ideal for growing rice, therefore the making of Japanese sake, for which the primary ingredient is rice, has flourished in many regions throughout the prefecture. The taste and flavor of the sake varies between sake breweries, so enjoy sampling and comparing a few before you find the one for you.

The Japanese sake produced in Toyama uses around 80% of rice ideal for sake-brewing, which is much higher than the 20% or so used on average in Japan. As such, Toyama produces brands highly regarded throughout Japan for their smooth, yet refreshing flavours. Partaking of this beautiful sake while dining on Toyama’s Kamaboko made by fresh fish will guarantee you a luxurious moment like no other.

Kamaboko (Steamed fish cake)

Toyama developed its own unique kamaboko culture thanks to the fresh bounty of the sea found in Toyama Bay and the skill of traditional craftsmen. The most famous of the kamaboko products on offer is “Konbu-maki Kamaboko” (konbu-wrapped kamaboko).This kamaboko offers a taste which hints at the flavors of local Toyama cuisine, as a place where the konbu food culture is strongly established. There is also a form of kamaboko made with sea bream, and this is often given as a gift in Toyama for special occasions or to say thanks.

“Taiheizan” & “Wakatsuru” In-store tasting event @ Ikebukuro

You can taste Taiheizan, KODAMA BREWING Co.,Ltd from Akita prefecture, and Wakatsuru, Wakatsuru Shuzo from Toyama prefecture.

Taiheizan (KODAMA BREWING Co.,Ltd)

Founded in 1879 in Japan’s northern Akita prefecture, the family owned Kodama Brewing Company first produced soy sauce and miso soy bean paste, basic condiments in Japanese cooking, before it began brewing sake in 1913. The centuries old, labor intensive Kimoto method is still used to brew Taiheizan’s pure rice super premium and premium sake. Our sake is being distributed to an increasingly wide international market that includes the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore as well as Japan.

Taiheizan Chogetsu is awarded Platinum Medal in Junmai Daiginjo & Junmai Ginjo category in Kura Master 2018.
Taiheizan Junmai Daiginjo Tenko 20 is awarded Super Premium GOLD in SAKE COMPETITION 2018. This is Seimaibuai 20%. (80% of the sake rice has been polished or milled  away.) The lower the number, the more the rice has been polished, the cleaner and more elegant the flavor. High polishing is difficult to achieve, and it is time consuming, because of that more expensive.

You can buy in amazon Seimaibuai 40% Taiheizan Junmai Daiginjo Tenko.
