Nakagaki Sake Brewery
Nakagaki Shuzo Shikan Refined Sake Brewery brews its spirits with incredibly soft, natural spring water. "Josen" has enjoyed its role as Shikan Sake's go-to product since its establishment in 1900 and offers an incredibly sweet flavor profile with a -8 on the Sake Meter Value (SMV). "Daiginjo" lies on the drier side of its sweeter counterparts while offering a much more robust flavor than typical daiginjo sakes due to the source water used in its creation.
Restaurant Genki-Tei serves dishes prepared with yumetororo—a type of mountain yam that’s a local specialty of Asahi. Enjoy the unique flavor and sticky texture of mountain yam. The restaurant also uses locally grown Mineasahi rice, whose small grain size and sweet taste set it apart from other varieties of rice. Aside from mountain yam, Genki-Tei also serves Mikawa beef cooked on a smokeless grill. Give it a try! As for souvenirs, gohei-mochi made with homemade miso is a popular choice.
