Japanese sake brewery visit is listed as one of the must-dos in Japan. As you may know, there are many fine Japanese sake breweries in the Tohoku region. One of best sake making regions is Akita. I have heard from my nihonshoku Japanese cuisine lovers that sake in Akita is good. They recommended that I taste the sake at the brewery.
Before entering the brewery, I heard the sound of clear water running. I searched for the sound and found a creek with clear water. I touched the water and it was cold and smooth.
I called the brewery for the tour in advance. The tour started with the explanation as to why there was a water stream in the brewery.
The free guided tour is only available upon reservation.
Watch the fire and the fire extinguisher.
This brewery is more than 300 years old.
