100% worth doing. The owner takes you around the brewery and explains the process of making sake. It's explained very clearly and really interesting to see where it is all made. The process is done in winter so there were also videos of it being...More

The couple in charge of the brewery were extraordinarily accommodating, and this is a must if in the area.

Had a English tour with the owner, amazing what I learned. The sake to taste is amazing! I really loved the time there and would go again. Definitely worth a visit!

Mid-February, this brewery holds a festival to celebrate the fresh batch of Sake. This is the best time to come!
