FUSHIMI, A TOWN OF SAKE AND WATER
Fushimi, a district of Kyoto, is blessed with abundant underground water. The area was previously known as Fushimizu or Fukusui, which refers to water running underground and emerging at a spring. Sake made in Fushimi is said to be smooth and mellow. This attributes from the balance of elements such as potassium and calcium in the water. Fushimi’s underground water is categorized as medium-hard water, which is of the perfect quality and composition for making smooth and mellow sake. It is said that the sake making process requires 14.4 liters of water to produce 1.8 liters of sake. Then add the dedication, expertise and sheer hard work of the sake brewers and the result is the excellent sake that continues to be made in Fushimi to this day. Now Fushimi is proud to be the second largest town in sake production in whole Japan, following Nada in Hyogo Prefecture.
