YAEGAKI BREWERYLEARN MORE
Yaegaki started out as a timber company founded in Banshu-Hayashida (modern day Himeji area) of Hyogo Prefecture in 1666. The “Yaegaki” brand, established in 1881, was named after a poem written by Susanoo-no-Mikoto, an ancient mythical character thought to have pioneered the Himeji area. In the poem, Susanoo protects his home and his newly-wed wife with many-layered clouds, figuratively expressed as eightfold fences, or yaegaki. Yaegaki uses the name as a symbol of celebration and joy that sake can bring to people's lives.
