Origin of the name
1. Please explain the origin of the name your representative/famous brand.
"Tatsuriki" is named for the founder of the Shingon school of Buddhism, Ryuju Bosatsu ("Tatsu" and "Ryu" both mean "dragon"). Ryuju Bosatsu is said to have attained divine powers through his many difficult labors, and lived for hundreds of years. They thought that by borrowing the strength of Ryuju Bosatsu they could produce a sake better than any other, and named if "Tatsuriki."
