I was very impressed with my trip to the Sake Brewery! I did not get to have a guided English tour of the factory but they did welcome me and let me walk around on my own and take photos.
After walking around and looking at the different photos they had on the walls from years past, I was treated to MANY samples of various sake.
I loved how the labels are still placed on each bottle by hand, giving the presentation a very personable feel in a world where most everything else is automated and made by machine.
I ended up buying 5 bottles of various sakes. My favorite was the peach sake, and I also bought some so-chu for my at home Lime Chu-hai's :)
I plan to visit this factory again this weekend! A must see spot when you come to Sasebo.
