Wine of Japan


Established in 1973, Wine of Japan is one of the oldest family owned and operated national importers and distributors of ultra-premium Japanese sake, spirits and beer.

Wine of Japan (WOJ) began as an importer and regional beverage alcohol distributor servicing the New York tri-state area. In 1984, Sanwa Trading Co., Inc. was founded as the commercial foodstuff sister importer and distributor. In 2003, a second beverage alcohol and commercial foodstuff distribution center was established in Orlando, Florida under the Sanwa banner. Most recently in 2015, WOJ established a west coast distribution center in Los Angeles, California.

With over 42 years of experience, WOJ continues to introduce the best Japan has to offer to an ever-growing audience in the United States. Keeping current with evolving consumer palates, the portfolio is continuously evaluated and curated to ensure that only the most exclusive and select products are offered. Longevity is a testament to WOJ’s expertise, foresight, and unrelenting focus on customer service.

Third generation Masahiro Takeda is currently the vice president of this prestigious company. In this role, he curates a comprehensive portfolio of around 250 brands of Japanese sake, beer, and spirits like shochu, distributed in 30 states. Prior to this role, Mas worked in international architecture and later practiced commercial law in Florida and New York.
