About Rokka Sake brewery
All Sake brewing starts from Tsugaru and finishes in Tsugaru in Rokkashuzo.
Rokka Sake Brewery was established in 1972, when it merged 3 local breweries: Takashimaya Brewery, Shiraume Brewery and Kawamura Brewery. We have been brewing Japanese sake for over 300 years since the foundation of Takashimaya Brewery in Hirosaki in the Tsugaru region.

Challenge to keep sticking to "dry"
Main brand of Rokkashuzo is Joppari Joppari refers stubborn or obstinate in Tusgaru dialect. We brew Joppari sake which is dry sake .
Origin of the name Joppari is not from only its dryness but from persisting in brewer’s beliefs.
