With an unchanged rural scenery and a castle town ctiy scape, Tamba is loved as a luxury food capital, and is one to two hours from the center of Kyoto and Osaka. It produces the highest quality chestnuts and black soybeans in Japan, and produces the world famous Tajima and Kobe beef. Hyogo is the largest sake distilling region in Japan, and sake is a highlight of the tours of Tamba, which borders Kyoto. The Tamba brew master group is one of Japan’s three great brew master groups, along with the Nambu and Echigo groups, and has supervised the brewing of sake for ages. The Tamba brew master group diligently brews sophisticated sake in what is called the Tamba style, producing sake characteristic of the Hyogo area, which is called “akibare” (clear autumn weather). The sake brewed by the Tamba brew master group has been the main sake style in Japan for generations. The greatest Sake proper rice, known as Yamada Nishiki, is also produced in Hyogo.
