SpotCare and cleaning of mountains

The most important factors in sake manufacturing are water and rice. Some activities are carried out for conserving the environment, which is fundamental for good water and rice. "Saijo Yama to Mizu no Kankyo Kiko" (the Environmental Institution of Mountains and Water), inaugurated in 2001, engages in the brush thinning of Mt. Ryuo in order to improve the mountain's water retaining capacity. The trees chopped down are processed into pulp and are then used as a fertilizer in the fields where the "Yamadanishiki" brewer's rice is cultivated, in turn helping to create Saijo's high-quality sake.
