Experience Details

A great way to learn all about sake is to visit a local brewery where it's produced. During this experience, you will be able to make your very own sake cup, enjoy a traditional teishoku style lunch at a local restaurant, and learn everything about sake! To make your sake cup, you will first choose from various designs and fragrant woods available. With the guidance of an expert craftsman, you will go through the sake cup-making process step by step and learn how to use the wood crafting machines to create your sake cup! This cute and practical wooden sake cup will be a one-of-a-kind souvenir for your trip to Kyoto. After trying out your woodworking skills, you will enjoy a traditional teishoku meal (a set meal) at a Japanese restaurant. You'll taste a range of traditional Japanese dishes, all made from various colorful local ingredients. After lunch, you'll head to a local sake brewery. Sake is Japan's most well-known alcohol, made from fermented rice. As you sip samples of sake straight from the barrel, you can learn how they turn the humble grain of rice into this potent alcohol. For the ultimate sake experience, you'll get to sample sake using the cup you made! You'll gain an appreciation for the craftsmanship of creating sake and enjoy the different flavors of this 15% ABV alcohol.
