Saku City, where the sake brewery is located, is on a plateau called Sakudaira, which is 700 meters above sea level. The Asama mountain range to the north, the Yatsugatake mountain range to the south, and in the middle of them runs the longest river in Japan, the Chikuma River (entering Niigata Prefecture and changing its name to the Shinano River). Surrounded by such great nature, it is brewed during the extremely cold season (in the middle of winter, the temperature can drop to -10 degrees Celsius early in the morning).
There are four wells in total: two shallow wells ( 13m ) and two deep wells ( 60m ) . These four wells are used differently to obtain water with a moderate amount of minerals and low iron content.
