Sake is made from rice and water. But to brew the best sake, both must be pure. Saijo is blessed with an abundance of ideal sake-brewing water that comes from local wells that have been famous for generations.
In Saijo, 9 sake breweries reside in close proximity around a neighborhood called Sakagura Dori.
I live in Saijo and I take my friends to Saijo sake breweries when they come here.
We go Sake-hopping about 6.7 sake breweries,so I always get squiffy and go back to my house,hahaha:)
One of My favourite Sake breweries is Hakubotan which is One of the oldest breweries in Hiroshima.The sake is known for its clean finish and elegant taste.And the staff have a good knowledge of Sake,so talk to them about it (^^)
At Hana hostel Hiroshima, We have a Sake tasting night every Wednesday and Sunday.
Our manger Haya chose some nice Hiroshima Sake . Let's enjoy it together!!
