The Blessings of Shonai
The Shonai Region of Yamagata Prefecture is renowned for producing some of the highest grades of rice in the entire country thanks to the pure water that flows down from the Dewa Sanzan Mountains and Mt. Chokai.
These mountains also provide bountiful crystal clear spring water that flows up from deep beneath the earth after spending up to 1,000 years underground.
This availability of high-grade rice, spring water, and centuries of knowledge accumulated by the sake families here has led to this region becoming one of the most famous sake-producing areas in all of Japan.
Yamagata Sake is also the only sake in Japan with a Geographical Indication and regularly dominates in both national and international sake competitions. Learn more about this here in our article about Yamagata Sake.
