Japanese Museums dedicated to Sake

Sake is considered the national drink of Japan, and is consumed with many meals on a variety of occasions. Sake Museums provide an in-depth history for guests about the various brewing processes, traditions, and cultural significance about sake. Patrons of certain sake museums can expect sake tasting as well, to get a better understanding about the drink, and how to properly serve the beverage. Many Sake museums are also breweries, which include history about the company, as well as unique brewing methods or ingredients added to set them apart.
During our Japan tours in Kyoto, we will stop by a sake museum in the famous Fushimi Sake District. The waters that flow from the river's underground springs are well regarded for the soft, clean properties that results in high-quality sake. While there are nearly 40 sake breweries to visit that offer museum & brewery tours, our Highlights Japan Tours and Cherry Blossom Tour Packages will visit either:

  • Gekkeikan Sake Museum - One of the Leading Sake Breweries in Fushimi offering museum tours showcasing ancient tools & techniques of sake production.
  • Kizakura Sake Brewery & Museum - A unique Brewery in Fushimi that produces Sake as well as Beer from the same yeast used to make their sake.

Both sake museums offer English services for guests, tasting areas, and gift shops for guests who want to take a bottle home with them at the end of the tour. Enjoy tasting authentic Japanese sake from the source on any of our Japan Tour Packages in Kyoto, or added to your itinerary on a Private Japan Vacation!
