Nagano features over 80 sake breweries that take advantage of the cool climate, high quality sake rice, and clear water, the three things necessary to make good sake. In recent years, Nagano’s overall excellent sake quality has generated increased recognition throughout the country. The Suwa area, utilizing artesian water from Yatsugatake Mountain, has come to be known as the home of some of the purest sake. Twice a year, the five sake breweries in the vicinity of Kami-Suwa Station hold a sake drinking event where participants pay one fee and can drink freely at any of the breweries.
