An allround experience of sake making and tasting
March 20, 2017

This sake brewery was established in 1751, and has a global reputation. Their flagship sake Fukuju Blue Label was served at a banquet dinner at a Nobel Prize award ceremony several years ago. At the museum, take a tour to view the traditional method of making sake. You can sample fresh sake (namazake) straight from the barrel in the museum shop afterwards, and there is a menu for light foods and sake tasting sets, as well as great souvenirs available. If you have time, the adjoining restaurant is open for lunch or dinner so you can continue your gourmet sake adventure!

I’m from Toronto, Canada and have lived in Japan for 17 years, first in Kobe and now in Ashiya. I am passionate about food, wine, sake, art, books, movies and travel. I enjoy studying Japanese and French, and in my free time, I practice and teach Shotokan karate.

Kobe Shu-shin-kan Breweries Compound, a brewery of sake "Fukuju" is established in 1751. You can purchase handmade sake from a barrel after sake tasting. There are facilities you can relax and spend artistic time including "Sakabayashi", a fine dining offering handmade tofu and homemade soba noodle, and "Kobe Shu-shin-kan Hall" offering concerts and "Rakugo" or traditional comedy stories. There is a garden where you can have sake in the season while looking at beautiful flowers you can enjoy each season, which would be the perfect place for your special guests from overseas (English-speaking stuff is available).
