- Oonuma Shuzo-ten is a very small brewery with limited production. This one might be a little hard to find, but well worth the search if you can.
- The Kenkonichi label, is a line of sake containing: Junmai, Junmai Ginjo, Junmai Daiginjo, and Daiginjo. The main focus even up to the Daiginjo level is on flavor rather than smell, so don't expect an award winning bouquet. Instead look forward to a Full bodied sake that will match a wide range of foods.
- My drinking suggestions for Kenkonichi's Junmai Daiginjo are: slightly chilled or room temp.
