Within contemporary sake you will find categories such as junmai and daiginjo. However, Kojimaya have come to doubt sake which does not challenge the traditional framework of these categories.
The legendary origins of sake first appear in the Kojiki, Japan’s first chronicle. It is said that the god, Susanoo-no-Mikoto, brewed the first sake and gave it to the eight-headed dragon, Yamata-no-Orochi, in order to defeat it. This first sake was called yashiori sake. It is said that yashiori sake was brewed many times over to create a rich sake. The sake making process now differs in such that a sake that has been re-brewed many times is called saishikomi, or re-processed.
However, even if junmai-shu is made through the method of saishikomi, it would still be placed into the most inexpensive category of futsu-shu. Kojimaya wonder if modern sake brewing has not lost some of the accumulation of sake varieties there once existed. They believe that the varieties forgotten can bring new possibilities to modern sake brewing.
