  • To introduce the sake manufacturing process, and the employees who understand the common words, communicate! The ticket is only 300 yen, but send you a wine version, the value of the actual return ticket!

  • Sightseeing in Kyoto is so popular, at the southern tip of Kyoto, Fushimi-Ku, in the book Island neighborhood even quaint, it is nice. Sake Brewery tour reminiscent history, exploring the teradaya, Tosa daimyō traces not bamboo fun or I think.

  • Towards the River from the District of Fushimi fasciculation shopping area lined up Hotel townhouse, brewery, taste. Museum of the laurel wreath here representing Fushimi latch. Brewing supply store display. You can learn the history of sake. And three kinds of Japanese sake tasting at the tasting corner and liked what you can buy.

  • Great for the price (300 yen per person) and the entrance gives you a small sake bottle as a souvenir. The museum is on the small side but very interesting to see. At the end, they let you sample some of their sake, which you can purchase at the gift shop. We were able to bring back quite a few delicious bottles of sake. The staff were very nice. We were in and out in less than hour. If you have time to squeeze it in your itinerary maybe at the beginning of a day, like we did, it’s definitely worth it. The walk from the train station was great and we got to see nice views of the neighborhood.
  • Recommended to see the process of sake, from raw materials to finish goods. You can see the tools of sake processing in the old days until now. Even though there is a ticket you have to buy to visit the museum, but the sake tasting really worth it. You can have a lunch and enjoying their sake.
  • Great for the price(300yen) interesting museum that runs though the sake making process. It is very small do the whole thing in under an hour. Free bottle of sake upon entering which is 620yen in the gift shop. Tasting at the end is so good we brought 2 bottles. If you turn left outside and go straight up the rd there is a street full of food shops which is a good place for lunch after.
  • Great museum in a historic sake brewery. Quite informative with all exhibits is Japanese and English. If you enjoy sake at all, this is a recommended Kyoto stop.
  • Small but interesting museum about sake making process. Free sample of sake to take away was nice & we really enjoyed the 3 tastings! The surrounding area by the canal is beautiful. We stopped here before going to the Inari shrine.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
