Transition of Tenryohai
Three breweries in Sado merged to establish Sado Meijo Co., Ltd., the predecessor of Tenryohai Sake Brewery.
Sado Meijo Co., Ltd. went bankrupt and changed to Tenryohai Sake Brewery Co., Ltd.
Due to the lack of a successor, the business was in danger of going out of business, but the current president took over the management rights.

Since this year, we have made a large capital investment every year, and have been striving to improve quality every day, with quality first.
