  • From Yamagata came on the way to Sendai. From sakunami station less than 10 minutes by taxi or bus. It is best if you miss the bus, train is one hour long but not so you book a taxi. Tour reception counter next to the listed phone numbers for taxi companies. Including the tasting tour is approximately 60 minutes. Wasn't too much detail on whiskey is very simple. Most of all IM see the splendor of Masataka taketsuru whiskey passion and love that. The once tried to arrange a taxi at the station, so didn't have much time, iwamatsu ryokan in naruko Onsen bus driver who goes where? I'll see! With us, send them for just our family Inn in the opposite direction. Inspiring! The following always stays with us (thanks)
