About Toko

Toko ——————
East of Yonezawa Castle, Sake of the Rising Sun
Toko has been continually operated since 1597, during the Azuchi Momoyama period. Our sake is brewed in Kojima Sohonten which later became the purveyor to the Uesugi Family. We always give our best to pursue first-class quality and deliver to our customers a culturally rich and refined experience.

Philosophy of Toko

We treasure rice and water - nature’s gift - and aim to make sake that reflects this gift. We take the fact that “microorganisms brew sake as nature’s blessing” seriously and our brewing starts from the rice paddy.

We value craftsmanship. Brewing with quality natural ingredients and microorganisms requires an experienced brewer’s eye and deftness of hand. We put craftmanship into every aspect of our sake.

Our goal is to be a world-class brewery and we actively make improvements through customer feedback. We continue to seek out new innovations so that we can make a proud world-class Japanese sake.
