Choryo Shuzo

Choryo Shuzo is located in Koryo-cho town to the north-west of Nara which is said to be the birthplace of Sake.
Koryo-cho town is surrounded by historic heritages: the shrine dedicated to the God of Sake “Omiwa Jinja” to the east, the holy site of Buddhism origin Asuka-ji to the south, and Horyu-ji temple nominated as a “World Heritage” to the north.
The philosophy of our sake brewing is based on “Shou-dou-mu-kyu-kyoku“(Self- satisfaction shall be avoided for one can always better themselves.) We have been dedicating ourselves to brewing sake that would be appreciated by customers and therefore we pay special attention to rice, water, people and sake brewing. Choryo website
