Seasons pass in Bandai Oroshi, bringing peace to Koriyama. The sake brewing of "Sasanokawa," established in 1765, has endured the challenges of different eras. Just as the sake is strengthened by harsh winters, the brewery strives to grow even stronger. Over generations, they have realized that overcoming adversity leads to the creation of gentle and harmonious sake. Their brewing philosophy values experiencing the joy of everyday life rather than clinging to rigid ideas. The importance of the invisible wind, like the northern wind of Michinoku and the fragrant spring breeze, is deeply cherished in their process. The brewery's name, "Sasanokawa," symbolizes their resilience, resembling the flexible bamboo grass that withstands strong winds.
