Product Description

Hakushika's Tanuki is named after the Japanese "raccoon dog" (tanuki), a beloved character in traditional Japanese culture. From woodblock prints to folk songs, the tanuki figures as a mischievous yet friendly character often seen toting a large tokkuri (sake bottle). Since olden days, the tanuki has been a comical symbol often used at shops and restaurants where sake is sold and most commonly displayed in the form of a small ceramic statue. In Nishinomiya, where Hakushika Sake is brewed, a legend from ages past claims that if a couple of tanuki mythical creatures take up residence in the brewery, incredibly delicious sake can be brewed. It is well known throughout Japan that the tanuki is a great fan of sake!
