The best, oldest sake

The brewers located in this area are responsible for over a quarter of the sake production in the entire country, making it the largest sake-producing region in Japan. Take a walk through the heart of the brewing area down Sake Brewery Street, which is home to many independent museums that shed light on the sake production process. Some of the brewers offer tours and samples.
