Ninohe City is located in the northern outskirts of wate Prefecture, bordering Aomori Prefecture.Nambu Bijin operates in this small town with a total population of 26,000 people. Since its establishment in 1902, the company has been working together with the local community to become a sake brewery that serves the community. Ninohe City is the largest producer of raw lacquer in Japan and the culture of lacquer is still very much present. The city’s lacquer is used as an adhesive for gold ornaments at Kinkakuji Temple in Kyoto and for repairs at Nikko Toshogu Shrine. The brewery obtained international certification as kosher in 2013 and as the world’s first completely vegetarian brewery in 2019. Taking advantage of this, the brewery and its colleagues in the local food industry announced the “Ninohe Food Diversity Declaration” in 2020, becoming the first in Japan to commit to building a town that is global inclusive.
