Kokonoe Saika was founded in 1908 as a brewer of vinegar.

In 1934, we began producing sake with the idea that “better vinegar should be made from sake lees, the main ingredient,” and the goal of “making sake that suits the meal”.
Wakayama is said to be the birthplace of sushi, and in order to meet the trust of the local people, it is our unwavering belief that we procure important raw materials on our own.
Based on the corporate philosophy of "Better vinegar to the table," "Consistently made from the main ingredients," and "Sake making that suits sushi and vinegar" Please enjoy it.
