Experience and taste Kyoto's ancient sake culture
Visit a small and large sake brewery to get a sense of the differences of scale and try their sake and other products. Guided tour at the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum. See how a brewery works and get a sense of what goes into production of the world’s best sake. Browse the shops at a local shopping arcade for souvenirs unique to the area.
Beginning in the Fushimi district of Kyoto, your guide will take you through the streets of this stunning town to various traditional and modern sake breweries allowing our guests to get a sense of the area’s 400-year-old sake brewing tradition. Known for brewing some of the best sake in the world, Fushimi’s secret lies in the natural spring water of the area. Because of the water holding less magnesium and calcium than other parts of Japan or the world, the sake of the area reaches levels of purity and taste other areas could not easily replicate.
