Uchiko-cho, home to the sake brewery, is a charming town with its nostalgic townscape where there are many historical and cultural assets built in the late Edo period (19th century).
You can take a closer look at the sake brewing handed down in the town where many gems are produced by the local craftsmen. After watching the video of the manufacturing process, let's go on a sake brewery tour. You will observe the up-to-date sake brewery always air-conditioned and strictly sanitary-controlled. During the brewing period of sake (from winter to early spring), the whole process of sake making such as steaming sake rice, making koji (malted rice), fermenting, pressing, bottling, etc. will be open to the public. It's is a recommended season for a brewery visit.
After visiting the brewery, sample sake the brewery is proud of at the tasting counter. Please enjoy the mild taste of sake made from agrochemical-free rice where the brewers are engaged in the production from planting.
Tasting is followed by shopping (optional) at the brewery store. You will get an original sake cup as a souvenir. Please enjoy sake with the cup at home.
