Toshimaya, the oldest sake store in Tokyo, originated when its founder, Toshimaya Juemon, opened a sake store at Kanda/Kamakura Waterfront (near the present-day Kanda Bridge in downtown Tokyo) in 1596, the first year of the Keicho era.
The very first sake of Toshimaya is shirozake (white sake), a sweet rice liqueur that was popular with women. Its reputation spread throughout the Edo era, and it was from this time that the Japanese custom of offering shirozake on Girls’ Day, the annual event during which people pray for girl's healthy growth, is said to have begun.
