YAMANASHI MEIJO BREWERYLEARN MORE
In 1750, 1st generation Ibei Nakaya branched out from the Kitahara family in Shinshu Takato (slighty northwest of Hokuto) to start his own brewing company. He based himself in Hakushu, falling in love with the water quality there. Today, several major companies have set up whiskey and mineral water factories, making Hokuto the biggest mineral water producer in Japan. The name Shichiken comes from the title of a fanlight (a celebratory gift from a feudal lord for a building inauguration at the brewery), "Seven Sages in a Bamboo Grove." Shichiken means Seven Sages.
