  • Reservations are required, but internal tour. On the day that the rain made the book without, we could see. You can see real Koji and moromi, is very good. Since the exhibition is paid, sake, is happy.

  • Pay the admission fee of 300 yen, the tour. Immediately drink 1 cup size was passed as a Memorial. Package Okura sake Museum and print, so as a souvenir. (Junmai ginjo sake) was flowed to the hotel that seems long ago, Brewer's was humming of a song like the mind at work. There are places where the water, between the building and the building. Mellow water! Wine is really tasty water. Whats the three kinds of sake and a sample in a small cup. I had bought it for souvenirs to be heavy and delicious.

  • In the historic Laurel location is a little hard to understand, but located in Fushimi. From old times sake and tools are exhibited. Several kinds of sake can be tasted at the end. Of course we can also purchase liquor or sake manjyu.

  • 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.
  • Low entry fee (£2) with a complimentary small bottle of sake and a tasting of 3 drinks at the end. English is used throughout the museum so you won't be left completely in the dark if you can't read Japanese. Also a nice gift shop selling various types of Sake, shotu(a Japanese spirit usually around 20-25% in strength quite smooth and can be made using rice, barley, sweet potato etc which tends to give quite distinctively different flavours I recommend trying!) Anyway for sake or spirit lovers do visit☺
  • 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.
