Shintani Shuzo

Flavor and brand vision

Wakamusume brings fresh, modern sake made from locally sourced rice for fresh, bright, juicy flavors balanced with full, rich rice flavor.

Techniques and style

Shintani Shuzo is Yamaguchi’s smallest brewery, and focuses on brewing small-batch sake year-round.


Water is sourced from the underground flow of the nearby river, while rice is primarily sourced from Yamaguchi. The brewery has a direct contract with a local farmer in the Tokuji region of Yamaguchi city for Yamadanishiki rice, as well.

Recommended temperatures and pairing

It’s clean acidity goes well with richly flavored dishes like braised pork belly.
