Sohomare Sake has been owned and operated by the Kono family since its founding in 1872 and is a prominent small sake brewery in the Tochigi region of Japan.
For five generations the Kono family has devoted itself to the art of creating a truly regional sake that is made of the finest Yamada-nishiki rice and hand-brewed the old Kimoto way.
As Sohomare’s newest family-owner Mr. Jun Kono continues leading its tradition of hand-craIing each sake.
Mr. Kono graduated from the University of Tokyo and the Matsushita Institute of Government and Management, and has traveled extensively in Europe and the United States.
To sake connoisseurs all over the world, Sohomare Sake humbly invites you to learn and taste that tradition.
