Saijo in Higashi Hiroshima City is one of Japan's most well-known sake towns. In addition to Fushimi and Nada, Saijo is one of the best places to find delicious sake and tour different breweries of rice wine.

Saijo, A Famous Sake Town in Japan


Located in Higashi Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, is Saijo, an area known as sake town.

Sake is a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from rice and is produced all over the country. Saijo is known for having the optimal attributes for sake making: a suitable climate, and good quality water. Hence, many sake manufacturers are gathered at Saijo.

For example, a short walk from Saijo Station on JR Sanyo Main Line is a street called Sake Brewery Street. Here you can find many breweries where sake is produced and stored.

This time, we visited five sake breweries located near Saijo Station: Hakubotan Brewery, Saijo Tsuru Brewery, Kirei Brewery, Fukubijin Brewery, and Kamotsuru Sake Brewery.

*The breweries introduced in this article are written in order of the writer's visit.
