Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited Ome and the Ozawa Sake brewery as a day trip from Tokyo. The town is beautiful. We enjoyed a long walk along the river hiking trails before heading to the sake brewery. We went on the english tour which they offer once a week and enjoyed it throughly. Our guide gave a through good explanation and though the tour was brief (maybe 20-30 min) we found it enjoyable. The quality of the sake is much higher than most of what I've gotten locally in the states and it was fun to try the different varieties. The tasting room is very comfortable and it was nice to see so many locals meeting up for an afternoon sake or udon with friends. The udon shop below and the outdoor patio made for a lovely afternoon in the sun along the river.

This sake brewery is a short walk from the JR subway line and well worth the visit. Though the tour was all in Japanese, we were offered a pamphlet in English explaining the process to make sake. Touring the facility was very interesting. The tour concluded with a complimentary tasting of one variety of sake and an opportunity to visit a tasting room and purchase (very reasonably priced) numerous other varieties. I really had no idea of what to expect but this really was a fun afternoon.

I absolutely adored coming to this brewery. It was far from the city, so the scenery was very green and full of mountains. I thoroughly enjoyed walking through the city after the tour as well.

The brewery was easy to find and a very short walk from the station. The only thing that I would recommend, is for an English speaking guide. They do give you pamphlets with everything they talk about, but you do end up missing out on the jokes and questions others ask.

The sake was phenomenal. After the tour, they give you a glass of sake to celebrate. Then you can go to the sake tasting room. There, you order your first sake for 200-500 yen (depending on the sake) and you keep the cup they give you and from then, the sake is only 100 yen to taste! Needless to say, we drank a lot of sake!!!

Below the tasting room, there is a tiny restaurant. We had some very delicious zarusoba and bought a bottle of our favourite sake and drank it all. Will come agian.

Booked the English language tour online and found my way out there pretty easily by train. Tour was interesting, sake tasting was excellent, grounds were beautiful A wee free taster, then the tasting room where you choose as many as you like for 300-500yen, but you get to keep the cup for each one you taste. I had four, so walked away with four cups.
Walked along the riverside 1.3km up to the next train station (Mitake). Would've gone to the next one (2.8km further) but was quite warm and a little bit wobbly from the sake, so I stopped in at some wee diner across from Mitake Station and had a calming beer. Train home. I reckon I'd get off at Mitake next time, walk down to the brewery, then spend an afternoon sampling and lazing about.

A short trip from tokyo to arrive in the middle of the mountains. Great sake, wonderful location, at a very good price. I tried almost all the different kind of sake the have, and all of them were great!

We were fortunate to be in the area on one of the rare days an English tour is given, but I wouldn't let a Japanese language only tour deter you from visiting (they do have detailed English language brochures). The sake brewery itself is quite interesting and I learned a good bit about the brewing process. There is a tasting afterwards and you get to keep the very nice sake cup.
What I really liked the most though, was their picnic area where you can order delicious food and sit in a lovely outdoor dining area overlooking the Sawai river. We went for a casual stroll along the river after lunch. The tasting room in the same spot offers very affordable ($1-4 USD) pours of a dozen different sakes, and snacks as well. My husband and I met up with a friend there and had a great afternoon.

The Ozawa Sake brewery is located at Sawai, Ome. It is very close to the JR Ome Sawai station on the JR Ome route to Okutama. The Brewery is one of the oldest in the area and offers visitors with a free of charge trip to the brewery and some fine Sake tasting. The visit to the interiors of the brewery is very popular and needs an advance booking if vising in groups.
Though the person in charge of the trip explains in Japanese, there are ample information in English and that is wonderful indeed. The Sake tasting is the end is a welcome addition. One of the best Sake, I have tasted in Japan (especially outside Tokyo) The brewery has an adjoining garden area with restaurants where one can enjoy Japanese cuisines with Sake.
