Kochi Prefecture's new project "Kuchuku no Tosa Goshu" Drinking Tour" starts from July 22nd

Fumimoto Brewery is also participating in Kochi Prefecture's new project "Kuchuku no Tosa Goshu 'Drinking Tour'"!

In Kochi Prefecture, a new tourism project this summer, ``Kofuku's Tosa Goshu Drinking Tour,'' will start on July 22nd (Saturday). We will introduce "local drinks" created from the water resources (clear streams) and specialty products (yuzu and Tosa tea) of Kochi, which is rich in nature, and will hold a digital stamp rally using the app. We will provide special benefits such as distributing special stickers to those who purchase eligible beverages, making your trip to Kochi more enjoyable.

With summer predicted to be extremely hot again this year, everyone from children to adults can enjoy experiencing local products and attractions through beverages.
Furthermore, we will carry out projects that will support the regions, producers, and manufacturers involved in the products.
