SEMPUKU-Sempuku Sake Brewery MIYAKEHONTEN Co.Ltd.

Company Philosophy

Miyake Honten during the Taisho Era

Creative spirit stemming from "harmonious union and whole-hearted devotion (frorm the founder's last will and testimony)" passed down through the generations is what makes Sen-no-Fuku (Sempuku, meaning "one-thousand good fortunes").

Since our founding in 1856, our basic policy has been "harmony", with which we have bravely confronted and challenged various difficulties. From now on too, we believe that the "spirit of harmony" is essential for us to share "many good fortunes with our customers".

Three pillars of safety and security that Sempuku promises:

  1. Complete quality control
  2. Solid sales network
  3. Promotion of streamlining

Where Sempuku got its name

Painting by Fuko Ishiwata
Fuko Ishiwata was an apprentice to Japanese painting master Gyokudo Kawai. His painting "Okame" has been on our label since 1953.

To honor the fruits of the women's support, Sempuku was named after the founder's mother Fuku and his wife Chito.

In honor of his mother and wife's support in his success, Founder Seibe Miyake added his mother's name "Fuku (happiness)" to the character "Chi (thousand)" from his wife's name "Chito", to read "Sempuku".
