Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum, 247 Minamihama-Cho, Fushimi-Ku, Kyoto 612-8045 Kyoto Prefecture

You’ll take a short walk to visit the largest sake brewery in Fushimi, where you’ll deepen your knowledge of sake and witness traditional brewing processes which have been passed down from generation to generation. At the end of your brewery tour you’ll have the chance to taste a few of the flavors produced there.  
※Due to the coronavirus situation, the brewery we visit has decided not to allow guests to enter the production area. This means that the actual fermentation tank and its facilities are not visible. However, we will explain the brewing process while looking at old tools in the attached museum area. Therefore, the information and knowledge gained from this tour will be the same as usual.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Kyoto Insider Sake Experience, 271-1 Kurumamachi, Fushimi Ward, Kyoto, 612-8365, Japan

Sake Tasting with an Expert

You’ll get to try flavors of sake you may never have experienced before – as we’ll introduce you to bottles which have never been exported. Your expert guide will explain the differences in taste – dry, sweet, rich, fruity – and how each of these are produced.

Food Pairing

You’ll also be served various Otsumami – Japanese snacks which traditionally accompany alcohol – so you can see which types of food and flavor best accompany the different sake types.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
