Experience Details
Travel back in time to Japan’s Edo Period when you explore Takayama in Gifu Prefecture! The old town district is home to dozens of buildings from a hundred or more years ago, including seven sake breweries all within a 400-meter radius. This concentration of sake breweries packed into a small area is relatively rare in Japan, with most other sake production hubs throughout the country seeing their breweries much more spread out. The oldest of the seven breweries is believed to be almost 400 years old, and you will have the pleasure of visiting it in person on this Tour and Sake Tasting experience! Learn all about the unique conditions, from the particular climate of the Japanese Alps to the crystal clear water that helps cultivate the delicious rice used to make the sake, that created Takayama’s sake culture from a local, English-speaking guide. And, of course, all about the history of Takayama’s oldest and biggest sake brewery! After the tour, enjoy a sake tasting with several offerings.
