Nada Gogo, known as the 'Five Villages of Nada,' has been crafting exceptional sake since 1330. This coastal cluster, 12 kilometers from central Kobe and Nishinomiya, is a testament to centuries of sake perfection. Treasured for its crisp, dry taste, Nada's sake draws its character from the medium-hard water called Miyamizu, making it a sake lover's dream. Your adventure begins along the Hanshin Railway, where breweries dot the landscape. Stroll down Sake Brewery Street, flanked by independent museums that hold the secrets of sake production. The tour starts at Hamafukutsuru Brewery, where you'll witness the sake-making magic through glass-walled facilities that bring brewing to life.

During the tour, savor ten renowned sake varieties from three Nada standouts: Hamafukutsuru, Kikumasamune, and Hakutsuru.
