The Yamatogawa Brewery was founded in 1790. The Fukushima Prefecture is well known as a fertile region for rice production. Abundant fresh water from the heavy winter snows gives this place the name "Water County". Yamatogawa produces the rice in company-owned rice fields. The rice is grown with environmentally friendly methods, such as minimal insecticide and no chemical fertilizers.
