This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection! It was featured in February 2022 "Kayoko's Hometown Pairing: Saitama x Oakland".

The label is designed by Hyomon Enokido and the kanji means dragon. Brewed with local hard water, this sake is crisp and lofty, with notes of marshmallows and honeysuckle. Drink chilled with Daytrip’s deviled eggs, or Bombera’s fish tacos. Like Umami Mart, Kitanishi is embedded in the community as their summer matsuri festivities look explosive. We can’t wait to visit!
