Toji Sake

For Melbourne based founders Yuta and Shar Kobayashi, Tōji Sake is the embodiment and love of all things Japanese.

Born in Japan, Yuta fondly recalls time with his Ojiichan (grandfather) in Ibaraki. With his daily ritual of enjoying an afternoon glass of sake, Yuta’s grandfather passed on an appreciation for the timeless virtues of sake, born of tradition and refined over centuries.

After travelling throughout Japan and studying the work of respected brewmasters, from Niigata to Kyoto and everywhere in between, Yuta found a way to combine his love of traditional Japanese culture with the contemporary Melbourne food scene. The result is Tōji, a premium sake which bridges the gap between the classic Japanese drink and the modern Australian palate.
