Great experience for the free sake and sampling. Very small and wish they did a better presentation on the makings of sake. Photos and writing did not illustrate as much as we would have hoped for.

This area is one of the brewing capitals in Japan. At the museum, you learn about the fascinating history of sake and enjoy a tasting experience of three different sakes. You can also purchase a variety of sake in a multitude of sizes.

300 Japanese yen (about US$3). All visitors (except the person under the age of 20) can get a small bottle of Sake as a souvenir. This is also included in the entrance.
