what's sake

Recently, the world has begun to take an interest in Japanese sake, a traditional alcoholic beverage made from rice, water, and rice malt. Sake is much loved by Japanese people, for whom rice is a staple food. While sake is made from rice, the rice’s variety, place of production, and the water used for its cultivation all affect the sake’s flavor. For this reason, breweries can be found throughout Japan, each producing their own unique sakes. If you visit our store, please try some local sake from Hiroshima’s breweries.

Four types of Sake

Japanese sake can be roughly divided into four types.
If you’re new to sake, we recommend starting with the easy to drink light/fresh type.
In addition to Japanese food, our sakes pair nicely with cheese, dried fruit, and meat. First, select your preferred type.


Sake Tasting

Kubota offers ¥100 tasting of almost all of our sakes and fruit liqueurs to customers aged 20 years or over. We recommended tasting before you buy. Our shopkeeper, who holds a qualification in sake tasting, is here to help. Start by discussing your preferred type out of the list above.
