  • Small but great museum documenting all the steps of the creation of the Sake. An afascinating and very little-known world. There is a final taste of three types of Sake that are great.

  • This was our first stop for our tour of the southeast Kyoto region. The museum is about 5 to 10 minute walk from the train station and you mostly walk through residential streets so it is very quiet. ...  more »

  • This is a fantastic museum about the history of sake brewing in Kyoto. We had almost skipped it because it's a bit out of the way, but we're so glad we tried it out. All the exhibits are in many languages and are very informative. The entry fee of 400yen includes 180ml of sake to go plus 3 tastings. They also have a nice plum wine if anyone in your group prefers something sweeter. If you have any interest in brewing or sake, don't miss this museum.
  • Small but excellent museum. The entrance is 400¥ but is worthy. They give you a small bottle of same as souvenir. They have English guidance for groups previous registration, really worthy. They have a souvenir store with good sake products. The area where the museum is located is isolated from Tokyo's crowdedness. In this area you can find Japanese people in their daily normal life, also there is a market with old stores and some sake shops and bars.
