Nagashima Ichirō Ujimichi (長島 一路 宇治道)

I was born on the island of Nagashima in what is now mundanely Izumi District, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan in 1467 (Muromachi Period). My father was a samurai who died in the Ōnin War while fighting for Yamana Mochitoyo.


While I possess warrior training, my proficiency shines in the realm of gentler arts. My focus has been on honing my skills in cooking and brewing. I have also spent time indulging in archery, gaming, garb making, kumihimo, and singing. Over the past few years, I've dedicated myself as an officer in Østgarðr.

My interest in making tasty alcoholic beverages started before I joined the SCA. Having gone to New York Renaissance Faire a few times with friends, I tried mead and liked it enough to try making it myself.

I won my first brewing competition at Lions In Winter A.S. XXXII (1997), with a Smoky Mead. Yes, you read that correctly. The mead was aged in charred wooden milk jugs from Nepal.

I have run a few workshops over the years, and have done mead, cordials, and even made sake once. I am a member of Gratuitous Lily Guild.

You can find my brewing blog here.

If I haven't done a brewing workshop in the area for a while or you are interested in me doing one, please contact me through Facebook or through e-mail.
