About us

WAKAZE is a team passionate in expanding pleasure of Sake to the world.

Our mission is...

"Spreading the joy of sake across the world"

 

As the proverb "wajo ryoushu (和醸良酒)" says, Sake is crafted by "wa (和)", harmony of the brewers and Brings "wa (和)", peace and friendship to those who drink it.

WAKAZE's mission is to promote sake around the world and Bring "wa (和)" to people of all ages and nationality.

Producing the sake that people enjoy with their friends/family and find the pleasure of sake in, WAKAZE creates the wind of harmony "Wa (和)" across the world. 

The term of WAKAZE stands for "wakaze (若勢)" young sake brewer and "wa no kaze (和の風)" an air of harmony.

Based in Tsuruoka of Yamagata Prefecture, Japan, we commission a local brewery to produce our sake which we sell globally. 

As a first step of achieving our mission, we produce fresh and high quality sake in our brewery in France for people who live in Europe, especially in France.
