Origin of the name
1. Please explain the origin of the name your representative/famous brand.
"Tensei" was taken from a line in an expression originating in China meaning "the rain passes and blue sky shows through breaks in the clouds." We certainly aim to produce a rich refreshing taste that goes through, similar to the dream-like "Uka Tensei celadon porcelain." The four types of Tensei are, in addition to Uka Tensei: Senpou, meaning "blue sky between the mountain peaks after rain", Ginbo for "blue sky between the green trees", and Furo for "blue sky over the rich land blowing in the breeze".

Kumazawa Brewing Company: On the factory site, there is the beer and sake breweries, Italian and Japanese restaurants, a bakery, gallery and shop all together, making it a comfortable and relaxed space.
3. Please tell us your favorite pairing of food and alcohol.
What makes Tensei special is the high mineral content of the water used to make it, which allows it to pair well with a very wide range of dishes. Junmai sake goes with dried horse mackerel and simply seasoned pork. Junmai ginjo pairs well not only with fish and seafood but with pizza too.
