About us

History

In 1849, the first president Hikobei Shimazaki established our company.
The second president, Kumakichi inherited the brewery with 200 years history in Karasuyama.
Kumakichi was a big fan of the Japanese national sport SUMO.
He named the product after the word Rikishi ,which means SUMO wrestler in Japanese.

Policy

We devote ourselves to brewing many fine products with clean water from Mt Nasu and superior rice in Karasuyama.
We are surrounded by an abundance of nature.
We have a cave which we use as a storehouse for our SAKE.
We strive to maintain and advance our traditional Sake making business.

Identity

In 1970 we began making long term aged SAKE including Daiginjou.
We have continued to be a pioneer in this area with proven skills for both brewage and bestowal.

Hiden Umakuchisyu

We have continued to make a mild SAKE with a sweet flavor using our traditional techniques.

Company credo

We inherit the tradition of making Japanese ethnical liquor and devote
ourselves to the community through our activities.

Tour the Cave storehouseTour the Cave storehouse

The cave we have utilized as our storehouse was built for the construction of combat vehicles late in the second world war.
In November of 1945, Tokyo Douryoku Company moved to Karasuyama for their own safety.
They built two semisubterranean factories at the skirts of the mountains.
It is said that they produced 20 combat vehicles in one of their factories, although none were produced in this cave.
