Hakutsuru is located in the famed Nada district of Kobe, a leading sake production area. The name Hakutsuru means “white crane”. The crane’s reserved character and graceful appearance along with the cultural association of seeing a crane in flight as an auspicious sign, makes the crane an ideal symbol to represent the excellent quality of Hakutsuru’s sake.
Ukiyo-e (ooh-kee-yoh-eh) is a Japanese woodblock print or painting of famous kabuki actors, beautiful women, travel landscapes and city life from the Edo period. Ukiyo-e is significant in expressing the sensual attributes of Japanese culture from 17th to 19th century.
