Wine glasses are beautiful, why aren't there any glass for sake... what will it be like if we make sake glasses?!

The "Keigetsu" that is created by the same spirit as the predecessors of 100 years ago, having won many awards and is popular all over the world, is a representative of Kochi Prefecture's sake culture.


In fact, Matsumoto is also known as a wine lover.

"Sake of sake that can compete in the world from Tosa Town", and in recent years he is focusing on sake for western food such as French cuisine and desserts as chocolate, his sake brewing is developing in light of the changing environment surrounding culinary culture, where sake has potential bringing revolutionary richness to culinary enjoyment and is more than just for Japanese food.

Event guests will be served our special threesome combination of selected branded sake from Tosa Brewery, served in fine sake glasses by Kimura Glass, for our special memu only for tonight created by our proud chef Ebihara.
