A Closer Look
How Kushiro's only sake brewery achieves the great taste that locals love
Fukutsukasa’s sake is brewed by a process called kanzukuri, which is mostly done in the winter and spring. A store in the brewery sells sake straight from the casks, as well as limited-edition sakes that are only sold at the brewery, iconic sakes such as Fukutsukasa and sake lees. Generally no brewery tours available. Tasting available (prohibited for those who are driving or underage).
