Twentieth Century Pears, which are a specialty product of Shuho-cho (part of the city of Mine), are called "Shuho-Nashi." Thanks to their high sugar content, they are very popular. But more than anything, the best feature of Shuho-Nashi is their good taste. A product of the distinctive goodness of the karst plateau's water runoff, day-night temperature difference, abundant organic properties of the soil, and inflow of lime content from the Akiyoshidai Plateau over many years, Shuho-Nashi are highly sweet, soft-fleshed, juicy, delicious pears.

The Akiyoshidai Plateau has no rivers. Rain collects in dolines (sinkholes) and other depressions in the ground surface, and percolates into the ground. There it transforms into spring water and reappears on the earth's surface. The sake that is made with such clear, beautiful water has a taste that is truly heavenly.
