Uejo, northern part of Kumejima, where famous water gushes out. Once upon a time, a beautiful woman would appear at dusk and serve sake to young people returning from field work, inviting them to enjoy an inexpressible intoxication. People rumored that this was the work of a hermit living on Mount Uejo (a mountain on Kume Island). The name "Kumesen of Kumejima" was given in honor of the legend of the "Hermit of Kume."
The Traditions and Climate of the Brewery
We are particular about water. We use 100% natural spring
water from the underground of Kumejima Island for the preparation of
ingredients and all manufacturing processes. All production is carried out in a
state as close to nature as possible. All of this attention to detail is a
characteristic that enhances the flavor of the ingredients.
