Brewery:

As far back as the 8th century, the Imanashi family, makers of Harushika, have been involved in ceremonial sake brewing for the Kasuga Shinto shrine. When the brewery was officially established in 1884, it took the name Harushika (Spring deer) from Kashuga, a deer deity associated with the local shrine. Even now, deer are revered and respected in Nara with over 1200 roaming freely throughout the city streets. A 10 minute walk from Nara central park-- deer watching headquarters-- will take you to Harushika brewery. Keep them in mind if you find yourself ever visiting Nara!
