Chochin Shuzo originally wrapped their bottles in the local Chunichi Shinbun newspaper because printing a label was too expensive. It became iconic and has now been much copied.

Fifth-generation brewer Masayuki Kuwayama makes sakes that are muscular but never heavy. He long ago stopped entering them into contests, saying he brews for drinkers, not judges.
