  • Visited a field trips in elementary school where one may have visited since at that time, what we can do as it was. That's right, wine tasting. Atmosphere of the Museum was soon drink their liquor, but it made me think that the more interesting to see a change.

  • 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.
  • Great tour and a nice tasting area to visit afterwards. It's a bit out of the way but an interesting detour if you're up for a bit of an adventure.
  • Had a wonderful tour in there. Very well explain in english video and nice statues scene explain too. At the end of the tour can try severals in house sake for free. Bought their nice plum sake! Totally worth the price and taste really good. Recommended!
  • Loved this place, absolutely check it out if you are inthe area. Very informative and the history is quite cool.
  • A little but aside from downtown but worth the trip! The whole visit is free and there are many videos in English to explain all the different processes of sake brewing. Very interesting! And the visit ends with a free testing of 5 different sake. The only drawback is that there are no real staff around to answer you if you have any question... Only the staff from the gift shop.
