By sound, the term sakura is strongly reminiscent of the delicate yet refined and elegant Japanese cherry blossoms that have kept people in awe over the centuries.
Yet, being a brand having at our core Japanese Craftsmanship, we have put the emphasis on Kura 蔵, which means Warehouse in Japanese. Kura are a central point of gathering where crafts and goods are stored for trade, where techniques and skills are honed and stand the test of time.
This is represented in our brand's Logo.
Japanese sake education was selected as the basis of the sa.Kura brand since it caters to
the intellect (learning), the senses (tasting) and traditions of the Japanese culture.
