High quality Japanese wines have received good ratings at recent international wine competitions. On the islands of Japan, which extend a long distance north and south, grape cultivation is being carried out in a variety of locations, including valleys, mountains, hills and coastal areas as its mentioned in Japan wine map. Wine is produced all over Japan, with the major production areas being Yamanashi, Hokkaido, Nagano, and Yamagata.
Due to the wide range of annual temperatures, from the northern area of Hokkaido as you can see in Japan wine map, where more than one meter of snow falls in winter, to Kyushu, where the temperature regularly exceeds 30 degrees Celsius in summer, initiatives are being carried out to find cultivation methods that suit each area and high quality grapes are being grown in each location.
There are more than 200 wineries in Japan as its shown in Japan wine map. Approximately 96% of them are small-to-medium size companies with capital below 300 million yen and fewer than 300 employees. Cultivation methods vary among each of these vastly different climates. Honshu and Kyushu, for example, are known for being incredibly wet most of the year.
