    You’ll take a short walk to visit the largest sake brewery in Fushimi, where you’ll deepen your knowledge of sake and witness traditional brewing processes which have been passed down from generation to generation.

    Sake Tasting with an Expert

    You’ll get to try flavors of sake you may never have experienced before – as we’ll introduce you to bottles which have never been exported. Your expert guide will explain the differences in taste – dry, sweet, rich, fruity – and how each of these are produced.

    Food Pairing

    You’ll also be served various Otsumami – Japanese snacks which traditionally accompany alcohol – so you can see which types of food and flavor best accompany the different sake types.

    Kotaro and Merica were fantastic guides and so knowledgeable. It wasn’t quite as expected but we loved it nevertheless. If in two minds, do it. And Kotaro’s English was fantastic.

    My wife and I had a great time and learned so much! I feel much more comfortable selecting a bottle of sake and pairing it to the type of food I'm eating. The tour was really interesting, and our guides Kotaro and Marika explained everything so clearly and memorably.
