    Itoshima is located in western Fukuoka, popular as a tourist area for its expansive mountain range and gorgeous ocean views.

    Throughout the duration of this long-term project, a different Fukuoka-based brewery will be chosen to craft a sake each year. Producing the Seiko Haruyoshi is Isonosawa, the only Japanese brewery located in Ukiha, Fukuoka. Ukiha is abundant in natural water drawn from the Chikugo River.
