Mizunara's genesis and philosophy is grounded on a few phrases and ideologies. “Ichigo Ichie” is one of them and means “treasure every encounter for it will never recur”. Artist Kenro Shinchi based in Koshikishima Island, Kagoshima, Japan visualized “Ichigo Ichie” into the label for this exclusive bottling and we are extremely thankful to him.
