  • 利用阪神電車到住吉站是最便利的, 出站後往有交通燈的路口右轉直走, 經行人天橋再沿指示牌即可到達。 館內有豐富的日本酒資訊,更有造酒全過程的1:1模型展示;參觀的以日本人為主,外國旅客不算多,販售區可試酒,亦有會中文的店員協助導購。 
  • This is the fuller Museum see VTR even with the exhibition of each process. In the souvenir shop with some sake was selling also tasty snacks all over Japan. It sells are made.

  • Wonderful and informative museum, with a free tasting of selected sake and liqueurs. A great gift shop with easy to understand sweet/dry and fullbodied/light scales. Fantastic service which included additional tasting samples of 2 sakes I was choosing between. Plus you get tax free (8%) if you shop for over 5400 yen and present your passport.
  • Great place if you are interested in how sake is made and taste various types. Very informative, videos in English and qr codes with extra descriptions. Takes 30 minutes to go round the place. I was on Saturday, place was not busy at all. And it's free.
  • Really great museum. You can see a lot of replica's and examples plus the information, also available in English, is very good. Best museum in the Kobe tour.
  • one of the most wonderful mesuem that show how the Japan fabrique the Sake. Multimedia material with video and sound. Guides, Bus tour space, and tourist from all the world, Canada, Korea, Vietnam and of course China. MiniMarket inside
  • Very informative and educational videos in English about how sake is made. The soft served cream is tasty, too. The store attendants there told us it taste even better to pour some plum wine on it. And, it is in fact pretty awesome. One of the limited edition sake is only available in this location.
