Sharaku, the artist considered a genius of Ukiyoe, is the creator of a series of Kabuki woodblock print masterpieces, most rare and sought after today. Much like his art, Sharaku Junmai Dai Ginjyo is a painstakingly hand crafted artisan Sake, with exquisite aroma and a mellow flavor most prized in a premium Dai Ginjyo grade Sake.
Each Sharaku bottle shows a classic Ukiyoe print of a Kabuki actor, from the artist's work, circa 1794. Product of Fukushima.
