Very near to Roko island, one can do This tour by taking the local train for around 210 yen and then Walking to the sake brewery. The info regarding sake making was clear and explained in concise short videos. One can also taste the sake and buy their in house brand which has superb taste. Highly recommended.

We followed the sake breweries map from oishi station and went along the suggested route. We went to 3 breweries. The first was dead. The staff were busy packing stuff and weren't enthusiastic to entertain us. The second was more lively with locals and tourists. There were several bottles of sake for tasting but the guy in charge only let us taste 2 types (the in house ones) and didn't entertain us further. The 2 sakes we tasted didn't suit our palette so we left and headed for sakutsuru museum brewery. That was the most disappointing one of all since the expectation was very high. The museum segment didn't interest us at all. Some sake was placed in cups for tasting. They did t taste good. One was outright burning. The better ones were kept in a dispenser and we had to pay for tasting. ¥1000 for 3 small cups. The lousy ones allowed us to have 60ml and their so called prime sakes allowed us only 25ml. The only one which suited our palettes was their premium sake. However they are selling it for a staggering ¥11,000 plus. No way would that sake cost that much. Overall, this whole sake expedition in Kobe was a disappointing one. We ended up buying nothing and we were glad we didn't get duped.

Hakutsuru Brewery is a large facility well organized for groups. It includes a fairly complete display with videos (English and Japanese) on the production of sake. This includes some actual old barrels and materials. The grounds are quite pleasant and there are several sets of toilets. They offer free tastings as well as better sake at a price. The shop offers a range of items from honey to sake ice cream to sake cups. It's a fun place to visit unless you see more an a bus or two in the lot.
