  • When u are in Japan , go for Kirin Distillery tour and it’s free entrance and whisky tasting too. It’s quite an experience if one have not been to a Whisky Distillery and u can buy too.  more »
  • Tour of the first projection mapping is drawn. Relation to the underflow water of Mt. Fuji is transmitted. Unfortunately on the day line was non-operational staff.

  • We visited very enjoyable. Booth pictures and scents, the actual plant and just recently awakened to the whisky, so everything is fresh. Even though what is whisky tasting! Mt. Fuji foot casks maturing malts 50 ° and drink than Mt. Fuji foot signature blend of online and distilleries limited. The difference is easy to understand. Taught correct way to drink highball, so let's try at home. Taste too much greed out, add a tasting at an additional cost. Shop limited "Fuji Gotemba distillery DISTILLER'S SELECT single lanes" and "DISTILLER'S SELECT Fuji Gotemba distillery malts" 15 ml in each at 400 Yen. Elsewhere the 27 years I was a 2000 yen with 30 ml. So this time. Home purchase Mt. Fuji foot signature blends and single lanes, and two glasses. It is scheduled to visit next.

  • Can the tour be conducted in English or Chinese? I tried to reserve the tour online but can only found Japanese site and no choice of language for the tour.
  • This was a great spot to visit. The free 20-minute tour takes visitors throughout the distillery and enables viewing of multiple stages in the process. At the end, visitors are welcome to enjoy complimentary taste testing of multiple whiskeys and beers in the Kirin product line.
  • Great place to visit if you're in the area and have a hour or two free. We tried to get a bus from Gotemba Station but we're advised by the local guides to take a taxi as the nearest stop was quite a way from the factory, the taxi was cheap enough at ¥2000 and we were there within 10 minutes from departing the station. I think there are tours about every 30 minutes or so from 9 am to about 4:30 pm and are free, but if you have a big group its best to book in advance. The tour is spoken in Japanese but they provide you with an English language lamante, also a lot of the literature around the factory is in English to so you get the jist of what the guide is saying. The tour lasts about an hour in total, with a 15 minute (English subtitled) film at the start about the history and process of the whisky made here, then you move on to the guided tour which is about 20-25 minutes. After the tour you are treated to a 20 minute sampling session where you can have up to two high balls free of charge. There is also a gift shop where you can purchase some of the whisky at a discounted price. Well worth paying a visit, pleasent staff, great tour and totally free!
  • Great tour!
  • Whiskey's history and how you can study. In the last tasting delicious teaches me how to drink whiskey come. You can buy many souvenirs. Fuji emerges and put the Whiskey glasses as a souvenir is recommended.

Where to stay in Gotemba

The accommodations of Gotemba rarely stray too far from the train station. Though the city has expanded westward over time, most lodgings lie primarily in the east, with hotels, guesthouses, and hostels providing ample choice to suit a range of budgets. For more traditional and characterful options, head a bit farther east to Hakone, a nearby resort city with many more places to stay.
