Saku is home to 13 breweries producing the miracle beverage we call sake.
Blessed with abundant water sources and an ideal natural environment,
sake brewing has taken place in the region for over 300 years.
It is also one of Japan’s foremost rice-growing areas.
That profound moment when locally harvested water and rice,
through a painstakingly sensitive time-honored process,are at last transformed into sake is a true miracle—a miracle we invite you to experience for yourself.
Plunge yourself into the role of a brewer, hone your five senses,
and delight first-hand in the artistry of the brewing process
created by our ancestors.
President and CEO of KURABITO STAY
A Time and Place to Become a Brewer
KURABITO STAY has a double meaning,
referring to both the time our guests can spend
as a sake brewer, and the physical accommodations
and place that make the experience possible.
Our logo represents the roof of a sake brewery, as
well as the Japanese character人 (hito), meaning “person.”
Together, under one roof, brewing sake together.
This is the spirit expressed by our company logo.
Human Connections Enrich the Community
Just as sake is born from the workings of human brewers
together with microorganisms, the encounters and between
our guests and local residents serve to “brew” a richer,
more vibrant community.
In this symbol, the character 人 (“person”) from the
KURABITO STAY logo spreads out from one point in
infinite directions, and through the its connections gives
rise to bonds of friendship and harmony.
This is the wish behind this design.
