List of Shizuoka Sake Brewers

Here below is the list of all 31 “kura”/breweries in Shizuoka Prefecture (Chiyomusume Brewery has just ceased operations in October 2007), which were “working” as of November 2007 (with some nuances and notes attached!)
They are listed in a “traditional” order.
Official business names of Breweries are also included. Keep in mind that some breweries also produce brands for individual shops or distributors: “Miwa No sato” and “Ashikubo” by Fujinishiki, “Toro No sato” by Haginishiki, etc. as well as seasonal limited sake with different names.
As for the “maboroshi” (the ones that disappeared), I keeping updating the list!

Notes:

1) Kikugenji (formerly of Toyoo Brewery) even sold in Shuzenji is no longer a Shizuoka sake but from a Nada brewery who bought the name before Toyoo Brewery was absorbed by Bandai Brewery in 2003 to be able to sell in its place of origin!

2) Fuuki in Shimizu City are not a sake brewery but a alcohol brewing and bottling company from the Nada area, although one of their casks is displayed at Sengen Shrine in Shizuoka City. They represented (and might even still) the biggest oke-gai in the Prefecture.

3) Hiraki Brewery, although owned by Hiraki Co. Ltd, a Shizuoka Prefecture Company whose main shareholder is Shinya Totsuka, the present mayor of Kakegawa City, is a Brewery from Okayama City. No comments!

    I am trying to find out about a bottle I received about 12 years ago. It is “Light Feeling” It has a name on it that says “HANANADESHIKO’ I am assuming that it is “Sake”, but I don’t know anything about it. Please inform me how good it is, and if it should be served heated or cold. The last time I drank “Sake” was in Okinawa in the mid fifties. Thank you.
