Hokusetsu Brewery is a world famous sake brewery. We produce both traditional sake and more contemporary versions with unique aging methods by synthesizer music of Kitaro, a Grammy Award-winning musician, and ultrasonic waves to mellow the sake. "Nobu the Premium Sake" is popular among sake lovers worldwide. In particular, our brand is Robert De Niro's favorite sake. Mr. De Niro and his business partner, acclaimed chef Nobu have chosen Hokusetsu sake for their internationally known prestigious restaurant chain NOBU. Both De Niro and Nobu have visited our brewery. In addition, Koganenami, an example of Japan's other indigenous beverage, shochu, is matured using ultrasonic technology. Enjoy its rich flavor at room temperature, chilled, or served on the rocks.  E-mail: sado@sake-hokusetsu.com
