Sake factory

Close to our house (my wife's mother) in Kitakata,  there is a very good sake factory called Yamatogawa, this is the noren, the traditional curtain at the entrance of the shops with the name of the owner and the date it was founded, pfthen with nice calligraphy writings. The fountain outside the sake factory of pure spring water is coming from the nearby mountains is there for passerby to drink or even bottle it. To make good sake it neds good rice and good water, and here in Kitakata are both very good indeed! I like sake.
