Hakkai Brewery Co., Ltd.
Exhibited “Hakkaisan” at “National Treasure Exhibition 150 Years Later” Exhibiting the real “koji” as a future national treasure candidate
Hakkai Jozo Co., Ltd. (Representative Director: Jiro Nagumo, Headquarters: Minamiuonuma City, Niigata Prefecture), which
manufactures sake Hakkaisan and “Amasake made only with koji”, will be held at the Tokyo National Museum from November 2, 2022. We will exhibit at the “National Treasures Exhibition 150 Years Later – My Treasures, Future Treasures”.
150 Years Later National Treasure Exhibition Hakkai Brewery Booth “150 Years Later National Treasures Exhibition – My Treasures, Future Treasures” is an exhibition held to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Tokyo National Museum. This is the first open call exhibition at the Tokyo National Museum, in which companies and individuals are solicited for “future national treasure candidates” that they would like to pass down and preserve in the future, 150 years from now, in the year 2172 AD.
This time, Hakkai Brewery has a theme of “Koji and Hakkaisan nurtured by Uonuma.” We will exhibit the expanding possibilities of koji as a “national treasure candidate”. In addition to explanations on the panel, three types of rice (92% for rice, 60% for sake, 45% for sake) showing rice polishing techniques, koji starter for making koji from rice, and finished koji. We will also exhibit the real thing that you can see.
None of us who live in the present day are aware of the splendor of koji, which can be said to be the source of creating the flavors that are essential to our Japanese dining table, such as sake, miso, soy sauce, koji amazake, and shio koji. I want to connect with people who will live 150 years from now. Please take a look at this exhibition about “Koji”, which our company considers to be a national treasure. Hakkai Brewery will continue to work earnestly to create products that take advantage of the unique regional characteristics of Uonuma in the snow country and our unique technical capabilities.
