Mumyoi Ware Gyokudo Kamamoto

Gyokudo Kamamoto is one of the leading Mumyoi workshops on Sado. Mumyoi pottery uses special clay that contains ferrous oxide composites. Its clay becomes very dense and hard when completely baked. Mumyoi ware are said to enrich the taste of green tea, coffee, sake, and beer. A hands-on experience with the potter’s wheel is available from ¥3,000 (and a tax, and shipping costs, no overseas shipping). English information is also available.

We produce both traditional sake and more contemporary versions with unique aging methods by synthesizer music of Kitaro, a Grammy Award-winning musician, and ultrasonic waves to mellow the sake.

Mr. De Niro and his business partner, acclaimed chef Nobu have chosen Hokusetsu sake for their internationally known prestigious restaurant chain NOBU. Both De Niro and Nobu have visited our brewery. In addition, Koganenami, an example of Japan's other indigenous beverage, shochu, is matured using ultrasonic technology. Enjoy its rich flavor at room temperature, chilled, or served on the rocks.
