Japanese sake is made from rice, malted rice, and water. The alcohol content is usually around 15%, and it has a unique aroma and smooth taste. Sake brewing has flourished in Gunma Prefecture, which is blessed with good-tasting cold water. Many unique sakes called Jizake (local sake) are made throughout the Prefecture.
The local sake Maikaze is made from the brewer's rice Maikaze produced in Gunma, the brewing yeast called Gunma Kaze yeast that was developed in Gunma, and Gunma water. It is produced by many breweries throughout the prefecture. Look for the blue sticker.
