Cider holds a cherished place in Japanese culture, with a long-standing history that dates back several decades. It is considered a traditional beverage, particularly in the northern regions of Japan, where cider production has been deeply ingrained in local customs and festivities.

With a wide variety of apples, including Fuji, Aomori, and Nagano varieties, Japan offers a diverse range of flavors and characteristics that contribute to the distinct profiles of Japanese ciders.

These varying levels of effervescence provide a delightful array of drinking experiences for cider enthusiasts. The Japan cider market boasts a vibrant regional presence, with different areas showcasing their own cider production traditions and flavor preferences. Aomori Prefecture, for instance, is renowned for its apple production and cider-making heritage, contributing to the regional diversity and distinctiveness of Japanese ciders.
