Wine maker notes
Ippongi Sake Brewery is located in Katsuyama City, Fukui Prefecture, a town nestled in the foothills of Mt. Hakusan (lit. White mountain) known for its deep winter snows. Katsuyama is called the Dinosaur Kingdom, as more dinosaur fossils have been excavated here than in any other region in Japan. Its history traces back over 1300 years, to the time when Heisenji Temple was founded by the great monk Taichou in AD 720. In the 15th century, when Heisenji Temple was at the height of its prosperity, it wielded an enormous influence upon the central government and samurai society. Historical artifacts continue to be discovered to this day. Perhaps because of this rich historical background and its beautiful nature, Katsuyama was ranked 1st place on Forbes Magazine’s ”The World’s Cleanest Cities” list in Asia, and 9th place in the world.
