first Yamadanishiki rice made in Yamanashi

Taikan sake brewery is in Yamanashi Prefecture. King of the sake rice "Yamadanishiki" is usually growned in Okayama, Hyogo, Fukuoka prefecture. Because of the weather Yamanashi prefecture is not suitable for growing Yamadanishiki rice, however in Autumn last year some of the local societies and university finally made a success to grow Yamadanishiki rice. Children from local school helped harvesting rice and after that, Taikan sake brewery made Junmai sake with first ever harvested local Yamadanishiki rice. Children drawn original labels and it was sold only in local shops in Yamanashi prefecture. It would be such a nice touch if there is more those cute sake labels....
