    Great sake tasting experience in Kyoto
    My wife and I booked this tour with two other friends and had a great time. We all enjoy sake, but were not very knowledgeable about it. This was the first time we were able to try so many and compare them. It was a really fun way to both explore a less touristy part of Kyoto and taste a lot of really good sake. Karen was a great guide, spoke excellent English, and helped us pick some tasty new foods to try after the tour.

    Great Experience, Super fun tour guide!
    We had Seigo as our tour guide and he was phenomenal! He was super friendly and informative! He guided us through the Fushimi Sake District and taught us more than any of us were expecting to learn! He went above and beyond! We highly highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in not only trying Sake but learning about the making of it, the history and culture of Kyoto and the hand it plays in the history of Sake!

    Truly Amazing !! Seigo is the Best!!!
    Our tour guide Seigo was extraordinary, he was very compassionate, considerate, kind and such a sweet soul. He enlightened us with not only his kindness but the history of Kyoto throughout our tour, took us to many beautiful scenery’s and guided us to indulge in many different forms and flavors of sake. We walked away so thrilled by this experience and would have to say it was one of the best, thank you so much for a wonderful time and highly recommend everyone do this tour! You do have to pay at the last location if you choose to do the extra 18 Sake tasting, which we did and do not regret at all, HIGHLY WORTH IT!

    Awesome Sake Tour
    Awesome tour with our tour guide Yurina who was very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed the sake along with the informative and fun tour of Kobe area. We were very lucky as we got a private tour as we were the only couple booked for todays tour. A great way to spend a boozy afternoon in lovely company! KAMPAI!

    Friendly & funny guide! Excellent Sake!
    The Sake Tour with our guide Seigo was just perfect! He showed us the real insight of local Sake brewing (and drinking;-) in and around Kobe! If you book with him, you won't regret it! We drank the best Sake you could imagine and Seigo is very kind and funny! Many inside views, delicious Sake, he'll answer every question you have! Thanks again, Seigo, and all the best to you!

    Great sake tour to 4 locations
    We had a great 3hr trip with our friendly guide Yurina to four different sake producers. The producers included small and large scale operators. We visited: 1, izumi; 2,fukuju; 3,hakutsuru 4,hamafukutsuru. Three had a large and nice gift shop and one even had a large sake production exhibition. We tried many sakes. The minimum was 3 in one location, the maximum was approx. 10! Sakes also included fresh ones (non-heated) which can only be bought at the local production sites. During our walk Yurina took us to a small local tofu producer and let us taste fresh tofu and fried tofu crocquetes. All in all a great trip.

    Huge variety of sake tasting
    We did this tour yesterday and it was excellent. Our tour guide Yurina was very friendly and knowledgeable. We leant a great deal about sake varieties and production and found the three brewers we visited to be very different and interesting. Plenty of sake was tasted and our guide helped ensure we hopped on the correct train to return home safe and sound. Highly recommended.

    Charming Tour
    We spent a lovely day with Yurina who shared historical practices of making sake. We stopped at the three venues plus a tofu place. The sake places had professional displays and tastings but we would not have learned all the nuances about sake making without a guide and we would not have found the tofu place on our own! We went to the largest sake brewery in Japan which had an amazing display/museum which really added to our experience. There is a fair amount of walking between each stop which is necessary to space between all the drinking! We loved the experience and highly recommend it for tourists looking for a local experience. Thanks to Yurina and Seigo for making it a great experience!

I've been on multiple tours for wine and sake.
Seigo may seem knowledgeable as he talks with confidence, but when asked questions, he really doesn't actually know much. He just tries to be funny, but he really isn't..
He seemed half hungover from a long night, and smelt awful.
I later came back to purchase some sake, and noticed that he charges quite a lot for how much going around these places actually costs.

I've lived in Japan for over 4 years and this was better than any of the other sake tours I've done previously. This one felt the warmest and friendliest by far, with ample tastings and a variety of breweries to choose - from small to large. The main guide (bilingual Japanese/English) was also extremely well-versed and explained everything to us in a manner everyone could understand easily. I would happily do this again whenever friends/family come to visit!

Overall, it was a fun and enjoyable experience that helped me appreciate sake (nihonshu) even more. Highly recommended!

Seigo was an awesome tour guide. Besides explaining the breweries and their sakes, as an aficionado he also made a lot of suggestions that we would have never tried, and found new sake types that we would drink/buy now. It was a lot ofwalking, but there were stops to rest and drink (and shop!). He even brought a little suitcase to carry some of the bottles for us, so thoughtful! Would recommend to anyone!

We were the only couple on tour. Visited several breweries and tried their samples. Our favorite brewery is Fukuju both in taste and knowledge in their craft. We wish Mirai well in her future endeavors and thank you for showing us a good time.
