Founded in 1998, Yoshikawa Brewery's mission was to increase the awareness of agricultural products in the ancient city of Yoshikawa. Nicknamed "the Toji's native land" since it has been making sake since 1691 and produces Koshihikari rice that can almost rival that of Uonuma. Yoshikawa is also the leading producer of sake rice in Niigata Prefecture. The Brewery uses local rice, local brewing techniques and pure groundwater from the beech forests of Mount Ogamidake to produce "truly exquisite sake".
