Top ways to experience Fushimi Sake Village and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

I felt really sad about coming back to my home country and finding out how expensive imported Japanese Sake was, so please enjoy this region as much as you can and make sure you take a few bottles back home (starting at around 1000 JPY). In addition to the excellent Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum (very well worth it) we visited a few bars and grocery shops where we could also get Sake tasting:

- Kizakura Kappa Country
- Fushimi Yumehyakushu
- Aburacho

Make sure you visit the boulevard close to the subway station there. You can find some very good (and cheap) local eateries. The place is a bit outside of the average touristic area, so you are able to enjoy the true local atmosphere.

Our group of 9 visited the town of Fushimi in search of Sake. The town is known for its Sake production, large breweries, Sake shops & a museum. 3 weeks before arriving in Fushimi, I made an on-line reservation at a an establishment known as the Fushimi Sake Village (FSV). The term "Village", I believe is because of the relationships between the bar & neighboring Izakayas & restaurants. Our goal was to sample & learn about the locally brewed Sakes. We started with their featured 18 cup sampler (only 2200 yen!). It was the ideal start. All 18 Sakes served are brewed in the town, so as fresh as can be expected as Sake does not contain any preservatives. After sampling all 18 glasses, we ordered the favorites (the ones with the empty glasses facing up on our tray) & appetizers. Your food orders are provided by neighboring izakayas & restaurants. Please note, most of the food establishments open in the early eve For the widest selection of food, make your reservation for after 5pm & if you're going by train, take into account what time the last train leaves for Kyoto Station. It will help with the trying to remember the likes from the likes & the dislikes. One of best things we did was to take a picture of the bottle's label of all the favorites. Then just showed the picture at the Sake shop or department store and the staff knew exactly what we wanted. In summary, make a reservation through TableCheck, visit after 5pm & order your food before sampling.

Fushimi is one of the famous areas of Japanese sake breweries in Japan. "Gekkeikan" is one of the sake in this district and well know in the world.
We can enjoy the tasting of 17 kinds of Japanese sake that are brewed in Fushimi area in this restaurant.
Further, this restaurant (or I should say food court) comprises 8 small bars including Sushi and some other Japanese local cuisines.
The location of this restaurant is around 10 minutes walk from Fushimi-Momoyama station of Keihan line or Momoyama-Goryo station of Kintetsu line. When you have a chance to visit Fushimi-Inari shrine, I recommend you to make a little side trip to this restaurant.

My friend and I had an amazing time at the Sake Village. We were introduced to the owner the night before, and despite us speaking zero Japanese he invited us down to Fushimi to see his place. It was really neat to try a few of the nine or so restaurants. The sake tasting was fantastic, all local, and there was a live band. Couldn't recommend this place more highly. (Is a bit tough to find, but worth it).

In Fushimi Sakagura Koji you can try Sake made by 17 different breweries in Fushimi. A small glass (70ml) of Sake costs from $3 to $15. It is an ideal place to taste different kinds of Sake. You can also order some food.

We were recently taken to this restaurant. It is an amalgamation of several places. If you book in advance you can sit in a special area that allows you to order from all thw restaurants. The star attraction is of course the 18 sake taster set, which has been curated to last and match throughout your meal. A lovely stop in a picturesque part of the city that seems like it is form another era.

This was a fun find. Their is multiple restaurants under one roof. We found a table that allowed us to have a Sake tasting and order food from multiple restaurants that were all billed on the same tab. We choose a table close to the Ramen restaurant just inside the front door. The menu was in Japanese only but between the waiters help and the pictures on the menu we managed to order a great casual meal. The sake tasting was quite enjoyable too. If you are out for a local adventure, good food and sake give this place a try.

My Partner LOVES sake. This is a great place to taste different sakes and get a meal.
They also offer beer and other alcoholic beverages and cheese platters, etc.
overall a great place to go to relax and taste all of the sake they offer and grab a meal. Good value for money.

I enjoyed a sake tasting set (170ms x 3, 980 yen), food and a live bossa & jazz performance (free of extra charge). Rice balls, onigiri, were one of my life time best (I am a Japanese). Their dumpling (gyoza) soup was also great. Service friendly and many staff speaks English. Free wifi available.
Close to Fushimi Inari Shrine but a different train station.
