At HAKUTSURU SAKE Brewing Co., Ltd., we have opened our old sake brewhouse in its original form to the public as the Sake Brewery Museum. Our hope in doing so is to give visitors a feel of the tradition of sake making that has been carried down through the ages and to broadly and deeply convey the "heart of Japan" to the sake making world.

For sake lovers, the samples may be satisfactory or less. For non sake drinkers like myself, 6 samples made me a little tipsy and more than enough. No one can complain for free and self guided. The videos are great. It is an out of...More

Although you won't be able to see sake being made it's worth a stop here to see the fantastic displays. There are free samples too.

We saw some tours advertising a sake tour for 125€ pp. We decided to come here instead. It's a sake factory, that has a museum attachment to it. Yes, it's a bit outside the grid, but easy to reach by train and a 10 minute...More
