Yuki Tora

MBJ’s (Momokawa Brewing of Japan) passion is evident in nearly 200 years handcrafting some of the finest saké in Aomori Prefecture. MBJ inherited brewing rights from Miura, a brewery that ushered in the modern era of saké in the 1800’s, at the end of the Edo (Samurai) Period.

MBJ’s brewing history is hallmarked by their consistency in producing outstanding saké, evident in their impressive list of
awards. They are the winner of the Gold Award at the internationally renowned Japan Sake Awards for 10 years running.
And for an even more incredible 67 years in a row, they are the recipient of the “Nanbu Toji Saké Appraisal Award,” holding the mantle as the only brewery to achieve this long-running success.

Fine Imports Yuki Tora


Aomori, Japan

By the 22nd year of the Meiji Period (1889), it had launched full-scale saké brewing operations. At the time of the company’s founding, Momokawa saké was brewed with the pure water of the Oirase River, also known to the local residents as the Momoishi River. It is from this source of sparkling fresh water that Momokawa Saké derives its name.


Yoshio Koizumi

The traditional brewing technique and taste is made possible by the kurabitos’ (brewers’) passion for brewing. Leading the way is Momokawa’s Brewmaster, Mr. Koizumi, who has been with the company an incredible 50 years. Like the brewery, Mr. Koizumi has received many awards recognizing his achievements in the sake world, including honors of “The Meister of Aomori,” “Outstanding Technician of Aomori Prefecture” Award and the “Recognition of Contribution” Award from the Japanese Brewers’ Association.
