About the brewery:​


In 1881, Wakimura Muneyoshi (脇村宗吉), who hailed from Shiga Prefecture and served the Nakai family (owners of a prosperous Omi trading company in the Edo period), decided to produce sake after the Nakai family business declined in the First World War. Muneyoshi found that Nasunohara, the hometown of Nasu no Yoichi (那須 与一, 1169-1232), in northern Tochigi Prefecture, provided the perfect climate, water and rice for sake production. He started brewing sake in Ōtawara under the trademark "Biwako" (琵琶湖).

In 1917, Muneyoshi built a new brewery in Chiyasono and produced sake under the trademark "Sono no Tsuru" (園の鶴). In 1931, the brewery moved one last time to Ōtawara using the trademark "Hōran" (鳳鸞), a mythical bird. In May 1952, Wakimura Shuzo Co., Ltd. (脇村酒造株式会社) was established, and in November 1966, the company name was changed to Hōran Shuzō Co. In May 1993, with the abolition of the sake classification, the brewery changed its logo, products and labels. It ceased operations at the end of 2019, after 138 years of sake production.
