Welcome to Uonuma Jozo.

Uonuma Jozo was built here, in Echigo, facing its three great mountains which give blessing of the wealthy water of melted snow.
Uonuma, a city of heavy snowfall, is the place of plentiful rice harvest.
It is clear and clean water, rice in good whiteness, and Koji to bring fermentation, that are essential for making Amazake.
At this rice koji factory, taking full advantage of precious gifts from the nature, Amazake and other fermented foods are being made.
