Graduated from Tokyo University of Agriculture; President and CEO in 2022.
In the Meiji period (1868-1912), when the main form of transport changed from ships to railways, the company changed its business from drapery merchant to sake brewer. Since then, it has remained a Fushimi sake brewer to the present day.
You can visit the brewery and enjoy a tasting. The brewery is located in a historic town centre.
