Shochu

  

Shochu is a type of Japanese alcohol.

It is like vodka. 

It is made from potato, rice, wheat, soba, brown sugar, or chestnut.

The potato one is most popular. 

These are Kagoshima’s shochu. 

Kagoshima is number one in production and consumption in Japan.

There are more than 100 shochu makers in Kagoshima. 

They say Satuma’s shochu is like Bordeaux’s wine or Scotch’s whiskey.

And they say shochu helps thin the blood so it is good for you.
