The museum is quite close to Nijo market. As it is only the museum for the winery only, the wines on display are quite limited. There were some information on sake in Japanese which is a bit difficult for foreigners. Tasted some Daiginjyo and also the sake ice cream. Not sure if it was really worth the effort to make...

No tasting unless one purchases a bottle. Basically a finely presented store. One display on the brewing process.

This is not a museum-it is a Sake shop. If you want to buy Sake from Sapporo then this is a great place to go. They were very nice and allowed you to sample the different types of Sake they sell. But that was all; it's not a museum and it was not a sake tasting place-merely sampling a product... More

Just a small building selling sake. Waste of time walking from Nijo market. Just a rowof pic showing how sake is made and rest is selling sake. Don't waste time. Go to Chitose airport for yr sake purchase.

We went expecting to see and learn about the process and history of sake making. The shop is well presented, but there is only a very small section with some models showing the process. The rest of the building is a shop. It's not what I had expected and was a disappointment; not really a tourist attraction at all.

They should really take out the word "museum" from their name because it's not a museum at all. We walked in looking for an actual museum to learn about sake making and all there was were some miniature models the size of a melon each that showed a very high level on the sake making process. The rest of the... More

This was a fun little museum/shop with some info about the sake brewing process and a free tastings. I'm no expert in sake, though I've done tastings before, and found the tasting to be very educational. Also rather intoxicating, as they have a huge range and let you try anything you want. The sake ice cream is worth a try... More

It's not a museum, only a shop to sell sake. There's sake tasting inside, no other info or display. We were hoping to get to see how to make sake but very disappointed.

Its proximity to the nijo market makes it a possible pairing visit. There is a variety of sake and wine and even sake ice cream. It's a 12 min walk from the market and free tasting is available. I would return if I want to buy their brand of sake
