Kaba Shuzōjo, with its white-walled brewery set against the clear Seto River, was founded in Hida-Furukawa in 1704 when the first generation of brewers began their trade. The sake brewed here, with its suitable groundwater, rich rice harvests and bitterly cold winters, has received annual awards, including the Gold Medal at the National Sake Competition and the Gifu Prefecture Governor's Award. The representative brand "Shiramayumi" is another word for "Hida". "Yancha" is derived from "Furukawa Yancha", referring to the resilient and warm-hearted nature of the Hida Furukawa people. While the brewery preserves the traditions nurtured over 300 years, Kaba Shuzōjo also takes on the challenge of creating new sake that expands the scope of Japanese sake.

It is one of the few sake breweries with a female president at the helm, Kaba Atsuko (蒲敦子), in the 13th​ generation.

This Tokubetsu Junmai is only sold in the omiyage shops of Shirakawago. It has a fruity and sweet nose, a sweet approach with a solid alcoholic aroma mid-palate and a sour finish. If you buy it at a souvenir shop, check the expiration date. Some of these bottles spend a significant amount of time on the shelves. Passable.
