Sake Brewery

MORIKUNI is the one and only sake brewery located on the island of Shodoshima. The rice used in the brewing is the “Ooseto” sake rice from Kagawa, which has been partially cultivated in rice terraces in the Nakayama area of Shodoshima since 2015, and the yeast used is “Sanuki Olive Yeast,” developed from Shodoshima olives. With these high-quality ingredients from along the Seto Inland Sea’s coast perfect for sake brewing, the brewery’s talented sake crafters carefully make the sake by hand.

Their masterwork “Island Series” is all sake with amusing names, like “Fuwafuwa,” “Fufufu,” “Utouto,” and “Bibibi.”
The sake, carefully crafted by hand, is packed into bottles with as little treatment as possible, so it has a slight color to it rather than being fully clear.

There is also the MORIKUNI CAFÉ & BAR on the premises, located within a renovated Tsukudani factory that is 70 years old, and the MORIKUNI Bakery, where you can enjoy small bread rolls.
The Forest Sake Brewery MORIKUNI Gallery not only offers guests carefully brewed sake, but also dishes that are made with Shodoshima ingredients, sake, and sake lees. There are also items available that are perfect for souvenirs.

Highlights

  • Carefully crafted sake made from high-quality rice from along the coast of the Seto Inland Sea, perfect for sake brewing.
  • The bakery has a café space inside, but we recommend getting items to-go and eating them as you sightsee.
  • The shop sells sake that is perfect as a souvenir, as well as popular stylish packages.

    作為小豆島唯一的酒廠,又是賣酒的地方也是餐廳,還有很多清酒可以品嚐,可惜的是酒量不好😂
