This was recommended to us by another Tripadvisor reviewer (Thanks, Pam). We walked into here on our way back walking from the snow monkey park. Was surprised when one of the staff member pointed us to the bar and asked us to help ourselves - and no charges! We sampled all the seven sakes and purchased a bottle after that to take it back to our ryokan and enjoy it before dinner.

The museum was quaint with beautiful artifacts of the brewery, which is over 200 years old!

The museum itself is quickly overseen but if you are interested in sake a visit to the Tamamura Honten kura (brewery) is a must. We were fortunate enough to visit the city of Yudanaka for a few days during the nama sake "season" (the period where fresh, unpasteurized sake is released) and had ample opportunity to indulge in the fresh produce of the kura. The Tamamura Honten ginjo and daiginjo types of sake also come highly recommended.

Btw, their beers are great too :-)

We were staying in the area and noticed this place on a map. Being sake fans we thought we would find it. It's a walk up a fairly steep hill and we saw a wild monkey casually walk past us. Inside there is a gallery and we had a quick look but the free sake tasting got our interest more. There's many to try and it was great to taste a wide range. We purchased a bottle of sake which was very well priced. There's also wine and beer available. It was a nice visit in a quiet town.

This combined sake and beer brewery offer great looks to the production facilities from the outside or inside the sake gallery. We forund th e same tasting to be free of charge and self service - thank you. The beer room however has a charge to every taste of beer - it is more like a bar. Good way to spand and hour totally - unless you fall in at the beer bar.

This is a really fun little stop in the Shibu onsen area. We went to check it out with some folks from our hostel and had a really nice time. The museum is nice but if you don't know japanese there's not much in the way of explanation of the exhibits. You can see the brewing room and best of all you can sample an extensive array of sake ( for free!) which is all available to buy right there. I never knew sake was so varied in flavour and texture, it's an interesting learning experience as well as being the quickest way to get tipsy in Yamanouchi.

Enjoy! (responsibly)

We popped in while walking back from the monkey park - an interesting and pleasant little place.

Its free, and it is definitely worth 30 mins of your time.

There is a small museum of sorts with various sake related crafts - but there was minimal english explanation and no tour or guide or staff to explain anything. Nevertheless interesting little things to see.

Can see the huge containers brewing sake.

The highlight is the range of about 20 local sakes to try for free! Excellent quality, broad range. I bought a few small bottles - all good value (JPY300-500 per small bottle).

The staff were polite, and i felt no obligation to spend money.

Positives
- free!
- interesting
- quick
- free local high quality sake
- can try and buy

Negatives
- no idea what i was actually looking at in the museum - but its free so no worries!

Quite a pretty brewery with DIY sake tasting. They also brew great beers, especially if you're sick of mild lagers like Asahi. I learned a little and tasted some lovely sake, and the bottles we bought were quite affordable. Good stop.

I just heard Sake's museum that free of charge. I went to there with my wife. We just around there. However, we tasted 17 kinds of sake because sake's taste is free. Very good experience!!! And We drunk local beer that paid about $3. Ha ha ~ lastly we bought a bottle of sake.

We stopped by this place due to recommendation from our guest house host. You are able to taste about a dozen Sakes and many of them were wonderful. However, do not miss the opportunity to try and even buy a few bottles of their beer. The one on tap, I believe, was an IPA and it was really good. You can only get it at this brewery. It is on the way to/ back from the Snow Monkey park. Don't miss it.
