  • Staff (Mr. President? ) Who is very friendly and gave us a sample lot. Also check us still inventory in a supermarket, after trying to buy, just without stock. Also supermarkets such as Mr. liquor store near the little cheap or even so. And the plum wine is delicious. You can borrow the toilet is so welcoming and friendly.

  • When we were in Saijo we found the Kamotsuro Brewery was the best to visit as we were greeted on arrival, shown to a room where we watched a 10 minute documentary on the complete process of making sak...  more »
  • A wonderful place to learn how Sake is brewed starting from rice grinded seeds. You can taste the various flavours of sake and buy the one that is more tasty for you.
  • During my 5 weeks visit and tour to Nagano, Nagasaki, Hiroshima, Miyajima Island, Osaka , Tokyo, Ginza, Shimbashi and Shinjuku, I always drank the famous Saijo sake brewed by Kamotsuru- the Daijinjo sake aka the Obama sake. I drank it during lunch with my spicy ramen, dinner with my beef or eel bento set and during Happy Hour at the 24th floor of the New Otani Hotel like the locals do in these cities. This famous Daijinjo sake are sold at most supermarkets. It has a very beautiful fragrance taste and it is smooth down your throat. You must really try it.
  • Traditional sake brewery with showroom that has a learning/museum like section including a video on sake manufacturing as well as a tasting/shop area. Nice and welcoming staff and good sake 😁
  • Very nice
  • This is the best place in Saijo to learn about sake brewing since they have a video viewing area with seating for ~40 (videos also with subtitles) and self-pour sake tasting of about 10 kinds of primary and seasonal varieties of Kamozuru sake. Start your self-guided Saijo Sakagura tour here and then visit the others. Kamozuru Gold Daiginjo is one of the best - PM Abe served it to POTUS Obama so it is even more popular now. The 180ml bottles are perfect to pack in your luggage to give away as gifts and each one has two little sakura blossom-shaped gold leaves floating inside which makes it very unique.
