Sumikawa Brewery澄川酒造

Mr. Takafumi Sumikawa, the 4th generation Kuramoto, was someone who was sure of his path to brewing. He studied at the Brewing department of Tokyo Agricultural University and trained at the Takagi brewery even while he was still a student under the tutelage of Mr. Takagi Akinori, the makers of the ever popular Jyuyondai brand. He joined his family’s brewery thereafter, and became both Kuramoto and Toji. Mr. Sumikawa is considered a top brew master of his generation. Aiming for a gorgeous sake which is clear and umami rich, Toyo Bijin Sake is refined and elegant, with just the right balance of floral and fruity notes. The name Toyo Bijin, which means Eastern Beauty, fits the pristine style of the brew and its aesthetic perfectly, so much so that the Junmai Daiginjo Ichiban Matoi was even chosen to be served at the Japan Russia Summit in 2016.
