<Toshin Yoshu Corporation>

 

Toshin Yoshu Corporation was founded in 1963 by graduates of Nichiren High School in Yamanashi Prefecture. Their founding was based on the idea that, “as grape farmers, we wanted to create a wine that we like and that we can drink together with everyone!”, and is still making wine using grapes grown by Mr. Tagusagawa’s former high school teachers and classmates.

 

 

 

<Yamanashi Hakko Kogyo Corporation>

Yamanashi Hakko Kogyo Corporation was established by 450 families in the Yamanashi area with the idea of “making wine that we can enjoy with the grapes we produce”. Since this wine is made from grapes that are grown with love by local farmers, it is especially cherished by members of the community. As such most of the wine produced is consumed within the city and therefore it is not often sold in stores.

2. Learn about the local lore of “Yogenotori” which has recently been gaining major attention! 

In addition to this, the “Yogenotori Wine”, that is currently sold-out due to the popularity of the lore, will be available in limited quantities at this event!

 

The Yogenotori (a two headed bird) lore, originated from Yamanashi Prefecture and in recent days has been attracting a great deal of attention after another auspicious yokai from Japanese lore, the “Amabie” made an appearance on many SNS sites in response to current pandemic. It is said that the Yogenotori predicted a cholera epidemic the swept across the land during the Edo period. Since then many people believed that if you displayed a picture of the Yogenotori on your gate any misfortune that you were currently facing would end. 

  

Since this wine was introduced on the news, it has since sold out. However on the day of this event, a limited quantity of “Yogenotori Wine “, a grape wine produced by Mr. Tusagawa of T?shin Y?shu Corporation, will be available just for this event!
