The sake 'exhibit' is a few pictures and models on a wall. Most of the place is actually a shop selling many different varieties for sake. Good to go to buy sake, give it a miss if you are actually interested in sake history and...More

We were quite surprised that this place is called a sake museum. There were mostly displays of Sake on sale. The only thing of interest was the video on how sake was made. The two staff were unfriendly and preferred to talk to each other...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.

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...More
