The Ishikawa Brewery is located in Fussa, in western Tokyo, near the banks of the Tama River. It was founded in 1863 and moved its production to Kumagawa, Fussa, in 1881. Ishikawa prides itself on the delicate texture and sharpness of its sake. The brewery is a tourist attraction in Fussa, with a museum, two 400-year-old zelkova trees and a white-walled storehouse of historical value. In addition to sake, the brewery also has a brewery restaurant, Fussa Beer Hut, where visitors can enjoy Tama no Megumi microbrewery, which resumed production in early summer 1998 for the first time in 111 years, as well as Zogura Omusubi, where you can taste sake and microbrewery beer.

Ishikawa Brewery offers guided tours in Japanese and English. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, these tours have been temporarily suspended.

Tamajiman's Namagenshu is produced at Ishikawa Brewery in Fussa, just a stone's throw from the Tamagawa. The label depicting a vigorous horse galloping through the meadows represents the youthfulness of this namazake. It has a wonderful fruity flavour with notes of fungi and pineapple, pronounced sweetness, and a smooth finish. Perhaps a tad sweeter than other namazake.

All good things come in threes: so did the Tamajiman Arabashiri. Arabashiri (荒ばしり) means as much as "first run" or "rough run". It is the first sake extracted from the moromi simply by gravity before applying any pressure. It tends to taste rough, but this is not true with the Tamajiman. Well-rounded and sweet, it has no rough edges at all. It can be well paired with savoury and spicy food.
