  • This rather small museum makes up for it size by being very comprehensive in the story it tells through pictures and objects. It showcases the brewing of sake right from the water used to the various ...  more »

  • The staff here is very pleasant. I was late to the tour but the staff at the museum let me in anyways and caught me up to the tour group. I lucked out because the tour is entirely in Japanese but there happened to be a tour guide from another company there translating for her customers. If you don't happen to luck out as I did don't worry. Although the tour guide only speaks Japanese there are signs everywhere for each exhibit that explain everything in several other languages, including English. To make a good experience better you get a small bottle of sake with each purchase of a ticket.
  • Cute museum which is a bit difficult to find, given there is nothing in the way of Western signage. Inside is fairly small, so it's worth waiting if a coachload has just arrived. They don't stay long, then you can drift through at your leisure.
  • This was a cute side stop after visiting the Fushimi-Inari shrine trying the fresh clean water used to make sake and then touring the museum that explains how sake is made-ours was not a guided tour. They give you a free 180ml bottle with your 300yen tour ticket. Then after walking through the small museum we got to do a free tasting of sake. Everyone was very nice. We ended up buying a few bottles of sake and plum wine and they were very reasonably priced.
  • Nice small museum. Interesting to see the history. The samples are small, but very good. You'll get a free 180ml bottle with the 300 yen entrance fee. The grounds are a bit dull, but it's a nice area to spend a quiet afternoon. I'd recommend stopping here close to their opening time on a day trip from Osaka to Nara.
  • The place wasn't as I expected and the guide was telling maybe about the Nihonshu, but in Japanese. I didn't understand at all and the museum is small. I could see it in 30 minutes and then go shopping. It worths only if you are a nihonshu lover. It's located in a calm neighborhood, about 10 minutes by the station. The Japanese staff is always very kind.
