銘水百選(岐阜 長良川中流域)

Best Water 100's.
(Gifu Nagaragawa Middle basin)
There are few dams and big factories, and it flows in central Japan, Famous as a beautiful river of water. In summer, I often see children playing in the river. It is also close to mountain stream fishing etc. You can enjoy rafting and canoeing if you go a little upstream and you can also enjoy adults. The Nagara River Railway and Route 156 run parallel to the river, so you can enjoy the beautiful Nagara River from either the railway or by car.

Water has a direct effect on the taste of liquor, as it is said that sake is rice and water. It is clear from the fact that Jyouji ground has been born in the place where there is a Raizumi from ancient times.
“Chiyogiku” Chrysanthemum is located in Hashima City, sandwiched by Kiso and Nagara River. In this region, in the case of relatively shallow wells Kiso basin water, and more than 100m underground water in the Nagara Basin, dig over 200m and become Ibi river water. “Chiyogiku” liquor uses the water of the Nagara River from the underground 128m. This water, including calcium, make a mellow taste.

A delicious sake brought up by the time.
The Sakakura family who settled in Takegahana village, Mino country, began making sake brewing in 1738 to the seventh generation owner, Matakichi.The cold air of Ibaraki grated is full and the groundwater of the Nagara River in the clear stream springs abundantly and this area located in the center of the Nobi Plain Granded Zone. I focused on being the best for sake brewing.At that time the name of the alcoholic bean was "light red leaves."The palatable and mellow taste will be reminiscent of Mino 's autumn.The Nagaragawa River, famous for cormorants, is also characterized by not having a dam upstream.The flow of 158 km long will be broken into rocks, descending from the sea, forming a stagnation free of rivers.Meanwhile, clean ground water is brought to this whole area.
