Iwamura Castle and the Lady of the Castle (Onnajyosyu)Iwamura Castle was constructed in 1185 during theKamakura era and ranks alongside Takatori Castlein Nara Prefecture and Matsuyama Castle in OkayamaPrefecture as one of Japan’s big three mountaintopcastles.The stone walls of the castle are situated 721m abovesea level, making it the highest castle in Japan. In 2006,Iwamura Castle was selected alongside Gifu Castlein a ranking of the top 100 castles of Japan.The castle town of Iwamura has an unbroken 400yearhistory. The tranquil streets provide visitors to Iwamurawith a lasting impression of the old Japan and havebeen recognized for their cultural and historicalsignificance by Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs. The Lady of the Castle label (Onnajoshu) takes itsname from Lady Otsuya, the aunt of LordNobunaga Oda, for her role in holding outan invading army during the Siege of Iwamura in 1572.Iwamura Brewery - Brewer of Premium Sake Since theIwamura Brewery was founded during the Edo era in 1787,we have always operated under the principle of brewingpremium sake with crystal clarity and aroma. Using natural mineral water that springs from a four hundredyear-old well, brewed in the secluded natural environmentof Iwamura by expert sake brewers, we have strived to deliveryou sake to exceed yourhighest expectations.In modern day Japan there is a wide range of sake brewing rice varietiesgrown in different regions throughout the country, and it isa simple matter to achieve a variation in taste by using adifferent variety of rice. Here at the Iwamura Brewery,we don’t subscribe to that line of thought.We create only Genuine Local-Brewed Sake using local riceand water taken from our private well inside the brew house. To extract a variation in taste from a single variety ofrice is an extremely challenging task, but that is exactlywhat our pre-eminent sake brewers, drawing on their yearsof experience and technical expertise, manage to achieveyear after year. The rice used by the IwamuraBrewery increating the 130,000 liters of sake brewed annually (as of 2010),is polished tosuch a high grade as to make almost the entiretyof our sake special brew. The expertise of our sake brewers is a source of great pridefor Iwamura Brewery, with almost all of the sake we haveentered into various sake competitions becoming prizewinners.※Iwamura Brewery uses only 100% Japanese grown rice.
