We expect more like the normal brewery but apparently is way too commercialised, the staff will not assist to your need as they don't even understand simple English after trying hard we give out on asking them for assistance and help myself in the exploring...More

The sake 'exhibit' is a few pictures and models on a wall. Most of the place is actually a shop selling many different varieties for sake. Good to go to buy sake, give it a miss if you are actually interested in sake history and...More

We were quite surprised that this place is called a sake museum. There were mostly displays of Sake on sale. The only thing of interest was the video on how sake was made. The two staff were unfriendly and preferred to talk to each other...More

Just a small building selling sake. Waste of time walking from Nijo market. Just a rowof pic showing how sake is made and rest is selling sake. Don't waste time. Go to Chitose airport for yr sake purchase.

We went expecting to see and learn about the process and history of sake making. The shop is well presented, but there is only a very small section with some models showing the process. The rest of the building is a shop. It's not what...More

They should really take out the word "museum" from their name because it's not a museum at all. We walked in looking for an actual museum to learn about sake making and all there was were some miniature models the size of a melon each...More
