include a distillery, storehouse, vineyards, and shop. 


 

Ajimu Winery is striving to further improve research on cultivation of new grape varieties and distilling technologies with the aim of becoming one

of the best wineries in Japan.

Usa & Ajimu

 

Usa area including Ajimu are located at the base of Kunisaki peninsula and spreading around

Usa Shrine.

Since ancient time the Kunisaki peninsula has been home of Kyushu’s prominent Usa Shrine,

influencing the surrounding hills and valleys with Buddhist culture. Although this is a Shinto shrine,

it has long been holy ground to both Shinto and Buddhist activities, and the Kunisaki Mountains 

and valleys were often chosen by monks as practice ground for meditation.
