In 1886, our great-grand father, Heisuke, came up to Tokyo from Kanagawa prefecture (Isehara shi). He worked for the financier at that time and could open Sagamiyaheisukeshouten, named after his home and his own name (Sagami is the old name of Kanagawa prefecture at Edo era), here.
Our grand father, Heiichiro, the second generation, encountered the calamities to be burned down our shop twice in his lifetime. Firstly he suffered from an earthquake in 1923 and secondly the WWII in 1945. In spite of those disasters, he reopened Sagamiya and could build our business foundation. By his patience and honesty, he devoted himself to our business and could get customers reputation.
Our father, Heizaburou, the third generation, has been a man of enterprise and has developed his own business style. He opened food and liquor store at early 1970’s and left a good result. After running 20 years, again he developed the business in his own style, which is the liquor store with counter. That is our current shop, particularly, specialized in liquors, storing our national liquor sake and other liquors from all over the world. Since then (1991~ ), we keep this style.
When you visit our shop, please look up our shop wall outside. There are seven ants crawling on the wall.
Why are ants there?
Yes, the reason is because the ants are hard workers and know what is tasty. So our grand father, Heiichiro, looked at them very friendly way. Then our father, Heizaburo, made them crawl on the wall when our current building was newly built in 1991.
