Had a English tour with the owner, amazing what I learned. The sake to taste is amazing! I really loved the time there and would go again. Definitely worth a visit!

Mid-February, this brewery holds a festival to celebrate the fresh batch of Sake. This is the best time to come!

Ide san and family are awesome. They are nice. We learned about sake and Japan from them. It's a nice way to spend one hour and take break from clicking pics.

Highly recommended tour for those visiting Fujikawaguchiko. The tour ended with a little surprise when the owner took us for a short walk outside of her 130+ year old family house beside the brewery. Wow !! For the sake tasting ; the Umeshu Sake is...More
