The aroma is full of ripe fruits such as red apple, banana, cantaloupe melon, with a hint of fruitcake. Soft and rounded entrance, followed by a refreshing acidity which makes this sake bright. The finish is very gentle and balanced with lingering fruity flavors. A sake that pairs well with light appetizers, chicken, and fish.

This brewery is located in the 50th Minakuchi-shuku on the former Tokaido, in a mountainous area 20km away from Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture. Shiga Prefecture is known for its Shigaraki ware, one of the "Six Ancient Kilns" in Japan, and is famous as the main production area of raw rice. In recent years, the mellow sweetness, which has been a characteristic of local sake since ancient times, has been pushed to the front and highlighted in Emishiki sake. Brewing is lead by Mr. Atsunori Takeshima, the head of the family and the fifth head of this brewery.
