What variety of rice is used to make sake?
Japanese rice can be roughly classified into two varieties. The first, the ordinary table rice commonly used foe eating, encompasses a number of sub-varieties, depending on the manner of cultivation and the region in which it is grown. The second variety, Sakamai, is used exclusively for sake production.Ordinary table rice can also be used to make sake, but, in general, sake made from Sakamai has a higher reputation for quality. Sakamai not only features larger, softer grains than ordinary table rice, but it's also more expensive, since it grows only in certain areas and requires more complex cultivation techniques.

Good Water

Fukui is famous for delicious water.
Is the quality of the water used to make sake important?
Yes, the water quality is extremely important, because the mineral content of the water affects the taste of sake. Semi-hard water is most suitable for sake production due to its lower iron and manganese content. Japan has a large amount of precipitation (approximately 1,500 mm/year) and ample high-quality ground water throughout the country .As a result, excellent sake can be produced in nearly every region.
