Sample Sublime Sake at This International Award-winning Brewery


Taste the brews and explore how they’re made


The Sudohonke brewery in Ibaraki Prefecture, north of Tokyo—the world’s first to offer unpasteurized sake—has won many awards at the prestigious International Wine Challenge.



Reserve a tour and take in the sheer beauty of the property, with its towering ancient trees and immaculately preserved traditional storehouses. Learn the inside story of how sake is made. Then comes the fun part: enjoying some fine sake, with the choice of a simple tasting set or a full course complete with food pairings. You’ll come away with a whole new appreciation for Japan’s national beverage.

Access: From Tokyo Station, take the Katsuta limited express train to Tomobe Station (about one hour 10 minutes), transfer to the Ibaraki Kotsu bus to the Jotakumae stop, then take a taxi to the brewery (about six minutes) or walk (about 30 minutes).
