Tsuki translates to “moon” in modern Japanese. This symbol of female strength honors the early centuries of women who brewed sake.

Among many theories regarding the evolution of Toji, or sake brewmaster, the most common is that this sacred role orginates back to ancient times when the woman of the household was entrusted with the task of sake brewing.

To the women before us, all toji’s past and present, sake educators, and rice farmers, Kanpai!
