    Masuda Tokubei Shoten

    Fruity and aromatic Nigori-zake cloudy sake

    Masuda Tokube Shoten, opened in 1675, is the oldest sake brewery in Fushimi.  Probably, people remember them not by the shop name but by their signature item, “Tsuki no Katsura”, which was already made and loved by people in the Edo period (1603-1868).  Its deep aroma and rich taste attracted many admirers and it is called the “Sake of Literati” as some of its fans were famous writers and authors.  Masuda Tokubei Shoten is particularly specialized in brewing cloudy sake (Nigori-zake) and aged sake.  Tsuki no Katsura Nigori-zake (720 ml; 2,625 yen) is very fruity with just the right sourness and is also called “sparkling Japanese sake” and best enjoyed chilled.
