This excellent sake has quite an interesting story behind it! It is named Yashio, meaning eight tides. The ‘eight tides’ comes from a Shinto priest, who took care of a Shinto shrine nearby when the company was founded. In a prayer, often recited at the shrine, it is mentioned that one has to cross eight whirling tides on a long sea voyage. One needs quite a lot of energy to do that, and as the founder hoped very much to make an energetic company, he named it ‘Yashio’, in reference to the said tides.
