Our Free Brewery Tour is Available Any Time

In our brewery tour, you can see our mash-pressing process with the Sase style pressor passed down from our ancestors and used since our founding in 1880. This increasingly rare pressing method is now only used in about 10% of Tochigi breweries. If your tour coincides with our actual pressing process, you can try freshly extracted sake on-site. Experience the pure quality of carefully crafted sake made from the clear underflow water of the Nikko Mountain Range. We welcome your visit and look forward to sharing our flavor of pure sake with you!
You'll also have a chance to purchase sake here at our brewery's shop for gifts or souvenirs to take home. We are awaiting your visit during your trip to Nikko. To help us prepare the optimal tour with proper guidance, we ask interested parties to make reservations in advance. We strongly believe in preserving the traditional style of sake making, and hope to share with as many as possible the pure flavor of sake derived from the careful work of human hands.
