Story & Recommendation
Original Kyoto Sake Only a Short Walk from Nijo-jo Castle
Located north of the Nijo-jo Castle, Sasaki Shuzo Co., Ltd is a sake brewery selling Japanese sake that pairs perfectly with seasonal Kyoto cuisine.
Pairing Sasaki Shuzo’s sake with dishes such as murasaki-zukin edamame in the fall and Kujo leeks in the winter, the subtle flavors of the alcohol works to bring out and amplify the natural flavors of the vegetables.
However, if you’re looking for something cool to try with a classic Kyoto summer dish – such as sea eel perhaps? – then there’s nothing like a cold glass of the symbol of this brewery, Jurakudai (Junmai daiginjo).
In the Muromachi period (1336 – 1573), there were over 300 sake breweries in Kyoto City alone!
Sadly only two of them remain; and one of them is Sasaki Shuzo Co., Ltd.
We hope that you’ll stop by and pick up a bottle – or two – of this historic brewery’s high quality local Kyoto sake to enjoy at your hotel before turning in for the night.
