“MORIKUNI SHUZO” which is the only sake brewery in Shodo-shima island

The message from the representative director
Morikuni was established in 2005.
Shodoshima is an nature-rich island which has a traditional technology of brewing. The sake brewery, which existed before in Shodoshima, gave up its business about 35 years ago. Since then, there wasn’t any ‘jizake’ (local sake) here. But now, we challenge to revive brewing sake of Shodoshima.
Sake consumption in Japan has been on a steady declining trend, with the diversification of cuisine and alcoholic beverages.
But we continue to devote ourselves to brew really delicious sake. We hope that many people drink it as ‘sake of Shodoshima’ habitually and forever.
Through brewing good sake, we want to contribute to development of this island.
Representative Director  Aki Ikeda
