Hirata Brewery in Hida Takayama was founded in 1769. Takayama is almost in the centre of the Japanese archipelago, surrounded by the 3,000-metre-high Hida Mountains. The Hirata were merchants dealing in hair oil and candles in the centre of Hida Takayama. The fifth generation of the Hirata founded the brewery in the Meiji era (1868-1912).

Hidahomare is Gifu's leading rice for sake brewing. In winter, the snow in the Northern Alps moistens the rice fields as subsoil water, and the rice grown there absorbs plenty of nature's bounty. The large grain size, low protein content and high expression of heart white make it ideal for premium sake brewing. Sake made from Hidahomare has a good balance of taste. Hidahomare is used in Hirata's Hida no Hana (飛騨の華) and Hiro (飛鷺), making them excellent 'Gifu jizake'. The brewery uses soft subsoil water from the Northern Alps.

In 2021, Hirata added three new brands: Shōryū no Mai (昇龍乃舞), Takayama (多賀山), and Hiro (飛鷺).

A powerful nose of dried fruits and narazuke (奈良漬, a Japanese type of pickle produced in Nara), a foretoken of an earthy, full-bodied sake. Relatively dry with a moderate sweetness and a sour tingle. Crisp and spicy finish.
