自宅から1時かからないのですが初めまして行きました。東力士の大吟醸(辛口)を私が試飲して父にプレゼントしました。ほどよい辛口で口当たりが滑らかで呑みやすく、美味しいです。ついでにクリームチーズの酒粕漬けも購入。一口食べた瞬間ふわっと清酒(東力士)がほのかに香り、さらにチーズの濃厚さとコクが凄くワインではなく日本酒が欲しくなります。インパクト強いです。

I did not take it from home at 1 o'clock but I went for the first time. I gave a present to my father when I tasted Daiginjo (dry) of Higashi Shika. It's a moderately dry, tasty and smooth, sweet and delicious. Also purchase sake brewed cream cheese. Fluffy sake (Higashi Fuji) smells faintly at the moment of eating a bite, and the richness and richness of the cheese makes me want a sake rather than a wine. Impact is strong.

Unique Sake Brewery in the mountains
Oct 2016 • Solo
I had a awesome time seeing how they make Japanese Sake here and also was amazed to learn the amount of detail that goes into brewing premium sake. This Brewery is also called 'The cave brewery' as it is the only sake brewery in the world that makes aged sake by ageing premium sake in a cave in the side of a mountain. The free tour mainly on weekends takes you into the caves where the temperature is kept naturally between 10-15 degrees. Highly recommended for tourists.

Delicious Sake + Free Sake Cave Storehouse Tour
Jun 2016 • Friends
Ever wanted to sample cave-stored sake in the very cave where it was made? Shimazaki Brewery offers free tours of its sake cave storehouse (in Japanese) and at the end there's a free sampling of their best sake and spirits. I personally recommend the yuzu liquor for those with a sweet tooth (with a flair for the sour!)

The cave is also of historical significance in that it was built during WWII for the manufacturing of tank parts, though it was never used. While on the tour, you can spot the occasional brown bat! The cave also occasionally hosts concerts.
