Discover how sake is made through a 123 years old brewery tour

Sake has been playing such an important role for the folk’s life in Japan since as far as a history book can go back not just as an alcoholic beverage but also as a sacred drink considered to be gifted by the nature gods. It tastes wonderful when you know nothing about it, but it tastes even better when you have the knowledge of it. And that’s what you’ll gain from this firsthand sake experience.
