As home to the second largest number of breweries in Japan, Nagano is an ideal place to dive the rich history and warming world of ‘sake’. Nagano’s climate, abundant clean water, and high-quality rice mean that it is ideally suited to the production of a drink that relies to on those key ingredients - good water and good rice. The tradition of sake production in Nagano stretches back countless years and is as fundamental to the identity of the region as the mountains, snow and monkeys.
The popularity of sake is booming internationally and aficionados of the drink will find many excellent breweries to sample and buy from in Nagano. For those taking their first taste of this indulgent world, the brewing process and terminology of sake can at first seem daunting. But armed with some basic information and a couple of key phrases, visitors can quickly start to understand the world of sake, how to choose one and most importantly, the cuisine to match it with.
