About Toko

Toko ——————
East on Yonezawa Castle, Sake of rising sun
Toko has been operated since 1597, 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 the best quality and to deliver our customers cultural and exceptionally rich time.

Philosophy of Toko

We appreciate rice and water - the nature’s gift - and aim to make sakes respecting each characteristic. We take the fact that “microorganisms brew sake as the nature’s blessing” seriously and our brewing starts from the rice paddy.

We value handmade. Brewing from varied-quality natural ingredients and with microorganisms requires experienced brewer’s eye and handwork. We put handwork into things that need to be.

Our goal is to be the world-class brewer and we keep questioning the world how we do. We open our mind and look for new excitements and innovations so that we can make proud world-class Japanese sake, not one of those local sakes in the Orient.
