Breton in me could not resist mentioning Cidre de la Fermentation (pictured below) from Tateshina in Kitasaku district (Nagano prefecture).
I tried without success so far to find out who the producer was.
Tateshina is a small (rural) town (according to Wikipedia 2003 population: 8492) known for its fruit orchards.
Chika offers some details about apple varities grown in Tateshina in Red apples, pink cider, and white bread: on the pleasure of juicing apples (She who eats, October 2010)
She notes that Tateshina is in the heart of Japan's largest and oldest apple growing region.
Chika writes that most common variety in the area is Fuji. Her favourite though is Kogyoku which she describes as 'smaller, crimson-skinned, tart' and her treat in mid-October.
She writes that Kogyoku is similar to Ruby or Jonathan apples.
