T. Toyoda and Y. Takemura (eds), Akita Saké Breweries and Their Stories, 2016
Thanks to the abundance of nature’s blessings colored by the four seasons, Akita has become one of the leading rice production areas in Japan. By turning its good rice into fine sake, Akita established itself as one of the leading sake brewing areas in the 19th century. Sake breweries make an important part of Akita’s culture and society today. Here is an English guidebook in the Kindle format to the stories of thirty-five saké breweries in Akita.
