We stopped off for a quick visit. The plan had been to take the tour and try some samples before buying some whisky. However as I was the one wanting to visit and also our only driver, it wouldn't have been possible to try some samples. So we bought some whisky and got back on the road. There were so... More

I visited the Distillery as a bus tour group. If you've every visited any brewery before its all the same. Barrels and barrels of old used barrels... A lot of the breweries I've visited they only give small samples. This place gave out UNLIMITED free samples. i think it was two selections, ages 7 or aged 10 blend mixes. Non... More

I went to Nikka Whisky Distillery Yoichi in April 2015 with my husband and our 11 years old son and I thought it was really a nice place. We had booked the guided tour (only in Japanese) in advance for 2pm, but as we arrived much earlier the lady at the reception suggested to join the one at 1pm and... More

I really enjoyed the Nikka whiskey factory. Me and my husband watched the Japanese TV show called "Massan" which told the story about how the founder (Mr. Taketsuru) and his Scottish wife (Rita) built and made the Nikka brand. The factory is still functioning today and has displays on how whiskey is made and a tasting building at the end... More

Japanese make good Whisky, so let's try Nikka ! Maybe a little far from Sapporo but it worths it to go there. At this time snow everywhere is beautiful! You have free tasting with generous glasses and you can buy it after. Indications in English there and it is very popular for Japanese people.

Just 3min away from Yoichi stn, this is a lovely theme park of whisky. Guided tour takes approx 40min followed by complementary tastings of several kinds of single malt. You may also try lots of different grade of shots at a bar with a reasonable charge. Souvenir shop was filled with tourists who was in serious mode in choosing bottles.... More

The distillery is easy to get to from Otaru or Sapporo. We combined it with a trip to the Otaru Snow Light Path festival in Feb. While the train was packed full heading toward Otaru, only a handful of people got off at Yoichi Station for the distillery. It was nice to be away from the crowds and enjoy the... More

My family really enjoyed learning about one of the two most influential figures in the history of Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. His trailblazing journey to Scotland in the early 20th century to learn more about whisky was inspiring to read about as we walked thru the various buildings on the well-cared for property. Stepping into the 1920's home he shared... More
