Japanese Spirits “SHOCHU”
We are proud about Shochu which have aged within Japanese history and culture. However, it is still not so known worldwide. We believe passing great things from Japan to the world is appreciating all the efforts from the past. Via international trade, we would like to pass impressions and appreciation. This is our mission.
