Nomiaruki Brewery Crawl 酒造飲み歩き

All-you-can-drink sake in Kami-Suwa Onsen

The Nomiaruki Brewery Crawl is a fantastic chance to sample craft sake from five Kamisuwa breweries for one low price. Meander the street, eat delicious foods, and enjoy your time in the Suwa area with this great event.

How to Get There

Access the event via public transportation.

Kamisuwa Onsen is an easy two-hour journey via the Limited Express Azusa from Tokyo's Shinjuku. From the station, all the breweries are along the main road.

Five breweries to sample and enjoy

The Nomiaruki Brewery Crawl is held twice a year in March and October. Take the opportunity to sample from all five Kami-Suwa breweries. Maihime, Reijin, Honkin, Yokobue, and Masumi are all known for sake made from local spring water from the Kirigamine Highlands. The oldest establishment has operated since the mid-1600s.

With your ticket, you'll get a sake cup made of wood in the shape of a box known as a masu. That masu gives you unlimited samples from the five breweries. Try the standards, seasonal brews, and even some sparkling sakes.

More to explore

Before or after the Nomiaruki Brewery Crawl, spend some more time in the Suwa area ; explore the mysteries of Suwa-taisha Shrine , hike in the Yatsugatake Mountains , or just rent a bicycle and ride in the area around Lake Suwa.

Nomiaruki tips

Enjoy an onsen before sampling the sake. Kamisuwa is famous for its onsen, but alcohol and hot baths don't mix well. If you want your bath with a place to stay, make sure to book accommodations in advance. If Kamisuwa is full, try Chino, Okaya, Shimosuwa, or even Matsumoto for somewhere to stay.
