This charming junmai, with its faint taste of wild plum, represents a new direction for Japanese brewers. It is smooth and gentle, with sweetness and acidity in finely etched balance. Ideal for lunchtime sake-sipping.

Yawaraka’s mild 12% alcohol content makes it an easy-going companion to whatever emerges from the kitchen. Please do not agonize over food pairings with this sake. Yawaraka is more like a family friend, welcome at the table, always agreeable, good company glass after glass.

The brewery was founded in 1662 in the town of Suwa, where a tradition of precision craftsmanship had led to the development of the silk spinning trade. Attention to detail remains at the heart of the Masumi brewing philosophy to this day.
