Established in 1702, Ozawa Shuzo Sake Brewery in Mitake Valley is one of Tokyo’s oldest sake breweries. Though it is located in the Tokyo metropolis, the brewery is surrounded by nature trails, greenery, and mountainous landscapes, with the Tama River flowing through. Escape from overcrowded Tokyo, and catch a breath of fresh air here for a day, tasting the fine sake made with domestic Japanese rice and clear, crisp water from the surrounding mountains. The local water also makes for delicious, high-quality tofu, so the tour will also include a gourmet vegetarian tofu lunch! From Shinjuku Station, we will head to Sawai by train. Upon our arrival, we will first take a 40-minute stroll around the area, with a stop at a temple along the Tama River. Then, we will have a guided tour of the sake brewery, learn about the different varieties of nihonshu, and have a tasting of 4 types of Japanese sake. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, we will enjoy a sumptuous tofu lunch at a restaurant with a scenic view of the river, and sample more sake. Lastly, we will scope out the goodies at the gift shop, and cap off the tour with one more drink in the brewery’s garden. Ozawa Shuzo Sake Brewery, a historic sake brewery in western Tokyo, is the best place for sake enthusiasts to enjoy a tasting and tour in Tokyo. Expand your palate, learning about the variety of Japanese sake types, sampling them as you go and taste the area’s famous local tofu!
