  • Here is the whiskey made by Mr. Taketsuru's passion. Of course, making whiskey is important, but it seems to have valued harmony with the surrounding nature. The tour course is followed by a factory tour and tasting after looking at the image. I don't drink whiskey myself, so I bought chocolate here for walking. On weekdays, i think it's better to take a 10-minute walk from Sendai Station to Sendai Station for about 1 0 hours (10 minutes on foot from the bus stop of Nikka Bridge), but the road is crowded, so you should watch it for about 10 minutes. If it's a holiday, there's a free shuttle bus to the jr line. Nature is full.

  • I participated in a tour with a drink. You can watch the video and then see the actual facilities, but it's especially recommended when the weather is good because it feels good just to walk wide on the grounds. You can visit without taking a tour, but you can also put them in places where you would not normally be able to store barrels, so we recommend that you join the tour if time is right. Comparing the drinking is the end of the tour, but at this time, i was able to compare five kinds of drinks. It was very interesting and delicious because of the difference in beets and the material of the preserved barrels. Because the amount is moderate, the one that is weak to sake might need to be careful. There are a lot of kinds of souvenirs, and I bought various things unintentionally. The liqueur bonbon of the limited product is also cute and is recommended.
