Their sake is carefully brewed by hand and is full of the flavors of good rice and water. Their personal sake, as well as their Hokkaido regional sakes are loved by many people.

You can Feel the Hokkaido local food culture in their seafood nabe!

Crafted from fresh Hokkaido ingredients, nabe is a famous local meal of miso sauce with salmon.
Ishikari-nabe (2 servings) 1400 yen. Made using and Kotobuki miso and butter that combines elegance with a rich taste. The Salmon is so tender that it crumbles in your mouth.
Their nabe uses salmon that is caught at a port city situated at the base of the Shiretoko peninsula. The city, Rausu, is the nation’s leading salmon producer. The area produces large and high-quality salmon that is greatly appreciated. It goes well with miso. The nabe contains plenty of vegetables, such as cabbage, spring onions, shiitake mushrooms. Combined with the miso, the salmon and vegetables create a deep flavor that is delightful.
Enjoying the food culture in the area is one of the best parts of the trip.

Plenty of sake & shochu to drink!

Since this is a Brewery you can enjoy a lot of different, delicious sake. The best way is to order the Sapporo sake sampler set (1200 yen) where you can try 3 different kinds of sake. Three types we really recommend are:
‘Yukiharanomai (it smells nice and has a light taste), Tanchotsuru (it has a strong taste and goes well with food), Namarachokara (it has a really strong sour taste).
Of the many sakes available we also recommend: Zuishou ( it is some of the highest quality sake from the Chitsetsu brewery) with a really delicate taste, Kissho, (this is the brewery’s speciality). They use it to compete in the sake competitions and it consistently ranks at the top, Shibata (this is a dry sake that goes well with your meal).
All in all they serve about 20 kinds of Japanese sake and various wines.

You should try their high-level sake!

This restaurant is directly connected to their brewery so you can get limited edition sake like Shikami (700 yen).
They use the agricultural high school in Yamagata’s rice for this sake.
“Kazuyuki Sato (佐藤和幸), a 5th generation master brewer says the scent of this sake is rich and mellow.” The owner, Aoki Shigeyuki (青木繁幸) highly recommends it.
Also recommended is the ginpu sake (590 yen). It is a junmai ginjo sake using rice produced by contract farmers in shintotsukawa-Cho.
The owner also recommends certain foods to go with your sake.
“How about grilled squid” (660 yen). It is adult squid cooked in Chinese chili sauce. They use the Squid’s internal organs and a special bitter tasting sauce. “this sauce tastes great with our sake,” says Mr. Aoki
