    Have You Ever Been to Wakayama Prefecture?

    Wakayama Prefecture is located on the Kii Peninsula in the Kansai Region of Japan. The prefecture is known for Mount Koya, which is home to one of the first Japanese style Buddhist temples in Japan and remains a pilgrimage site and an increasingly popular tourist destination. Wakayama is also home to Nachi Waterfall, which is one of the most famous waterfalls in Japan. With a drop of 133 meters, it is the highest waterfall in the country with a single, uninterrupted stream of water. Wakayama's coastline, stretching almost 600 kilometers also provides scenic beach getaway experience.

    While visiting these famous spots and enjoying the specialty dishes of Wakayama, such Wakayama Ramen or Meharizushi, you might have also tried Kishu umeboshi on top of your rice, or mikan as a dessert. Wakayama is also as known the Kingdom of Fruit, especially mikan (a kind of citrus) and ume (Japanese apricot) are famous. All Ume lovers know Kishu Nanko Ume, the top ume brand in Japan. This is because it has an utmost quality, with thin skin, small seed, and soft flesh. The Nanko Ume originated in Minabe, Wakayama. Nanko Ume is used for various products which bring out the goodness of Ume, such as umeboshi, ume extract, ume confectionery, and, of course, umeshsu.

    One of the top umeshu makers in Wakayama is Nakano BC. They also has a well-developed, onsite tourism department. The company has a Japanese garden on the factory grounds and offers tastings and factory tours, where visitors can see the actual places where each step takes place from preparation to pressing and storage and learn about the brewing processes. You might have visited the brewery during your trip to Wakayama, but if not, we definitely recommend doing it during your next time to Japan. In the mean time, you can enjoy their premium quality umeshu at the convenience of your home!

    Umeshu Made From Top Brand Ume

    Nakano BC uses a superior quality Nankō ume to make its umeshu. To preserve the delicious flavor of ume, the brewing tanks are managed by a team of skilled workers who carefully check the acidity and sweetness of umeshu, mixing the fruit and changing tanks as necessary. The umeshu is ready after around a year and a half.

    On their best selling products is Nakano BC Yuzu Umeshu, which is a unique blend of yuzu juice, which was extracted from fruits in Shikoku Island and umeshu liqueur. Kochi prefecture in Shikoku island is the number one producer of yuzu in Japan. This blend is sweet and refreshingly sour with a subtle bitterness.

    Enjoy the taste of the top-quality Wakayama ume!
