Refined flavors and versatility in complementing world cuisines, not to mention the advanced level of manufacturing skills—it is no exaggeration to say that sake embodies the very characteristics of Japan’s culture that make it unique. Our policy is to spread Japanese sake to all over the the world with the resolve of a Japanese cultural ambassador, rather than just selling it.

About JCTO JAPAN

In our pursuit of introducing local sake (jizake) to the world, we began exporting sake from 13 breweries across Japan in 1996.

At first, we conducted indirect exporting through an intermediary, but later decided that it would be desirable to have the breweries lead the business, and we eventually established JCTO JAPAN, a brewery wholly-owned exporting company, in 2009.

As our history shows, our strength lies in the fact that we are not just a common exporter, we stand for the ideas and intentions of our sake brewers being reflected in actions.

For the world to relish savory local sake in the best conditions, shipping is done in refrigerated containers, and thorough temperature control is conducted during delivery until it reaches consumers.

We are also backed by the activities of Kuramoto US, Inc., a 100% subsidiary of JCTO JAPAN established at the same time, with locations in Los Angeles and New York where our SAKE MAN strive to promote Premium Sake from coast to coast every single day.
