Industrialisation and Human senses
Shukuho is one of the traditional sake breweries remaining in Wakayama city center. The brewery was established in 1886, whose wooden structure partially remains. The current brewery built in 1965 is an example that human senses and abilities were still controlling the machines. The large scale factory was still serviced and controlled by workers, who lived in the building for the six months while sake making was in process using the barrels, ladders, buckets etc all made with wood. The time was a major industrialisation but was still pre-computer control, when humans were in control of machinery, not being overtaken. The critical senses in sake making, feeling of the temperature and consistency, visual clarity, taste and smell - were controlling the machine.
