Naniwa Shuzo--Japanese Sake Brewery/浪花酒造

Naniwa Shuzo, one of the oldest sake breweries in Osaka, has been brewing sake for generations in the same family.

大阪で最も古い酒造の一つである浪花酒造は、十数代にも渡って酒造りを行っています。


Located very near the seashore, the brewery and the family home which is attached, is a Registered National Landmark with the government due to its unique beauty and traditional architecture.

海沿いに位置し、酒蔵とお屋敷が隣接し、その美しさと伝統的な建築様式から、国の有形文化財に登録されてます。


Japan once boasted over 10,000 sake breweries, now about 1200 are working to brew Japanese sake to the world.

日本にはかつて1万もの酒蔵があり、今や1200が世界に誇る酒造りをしています。


The craft, artisanal methods Naniwa Shuzo uses to brew their sake is unlike much larger breweries. In fact, Naniwa Shuzo makes a variety of fine sakes using traditional methods -- remarkable given that they are one of the smallest breweries in terms of annual production in Japan.

浪花酒造は他の大きな酒造とは違った製造方法を残しています。実のところ、年単位の製造量は決して多くない、小さめの酒造としては驚くべきことに、浪花酒造では、様々な種類の日本酒が伝統的な方法で製造されています。


The sake is delicious! The experience of visit is unique.

もちろん、お酒の美味しさは抜群!この酒蔵見学の経験も貴重なものです。



Come to Osaka and see the traditional way of life 10,000 brewery families used to live, but few do so today. Enjoy original Japanese sake culture by meeting the family that brews it, and by doing so, keeping a traditional way of life alive today.

是非大阪を訪問し、1万もの酒造でかつて働いた人々の生活をご覧ください。日本の伝統的な酒造りの方法を生かして生活している様子を直接お話を聞いて見て、感じることができるはずです。
