The process was interesting until they kept repeating it. The museum was very boring. The only highlight was the free sake bottle given.

It was cool to check out a Sake Museum! Found you get some value from the price, a self guided tour and a free bottle of sake. Do get to sample some sake at the end of the tour. There is english on the signage...More

I went with my boyfriend just to the musum and I would say it’s worth a visit if you have the time and your all “templed out”. For 400 yen you get a small bottle of sake entrance to the museum and a few samples...More

Small well organised museum with sake tasting and a shop at the end. You are given small free sake bottles with your entry tickets. Lovely pickles made with sake pulp as well. I was expecting a more ‘wet’ museum with demonstrations or even videos to...More

This visit will provide you an orientation on how sake is made, and the history of sake. Although it is a museum, it is not filled with relics - there are historic tools, vats, photos, and other items related to the sake brewing process in...More

Our travel agent brought us here after our Suntory tasting and before our lunch. All of the buildings around the area have been restored and it was fascinating to learn about sake.

A small museum, but very interesting. You are given a 180ml bottle of sake each on entering, then at the end enjoy tasting of two diferent sakes plus a sweet liquor.

We had never tried Sake, so decided to head down to this museum. Our suggestion if doing it yourself is to take a train (Momoyamagoryo-Mae Station on the Kintetsu Kyoto Line) and then walk a few hundred metres. Use Google Maps or equivalent. It is...More

This was one of the few Sake experiences I could find in Kyoto that was actually open to the public, which is why I made a special trip here. One thing Kyoto really could do is better embrace Sake tourism. This museum has an inexpensive...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the

300 Japanese yen (about US$3). All visitors (except the person under the age of 20) can get a small bottle of Sake as a souvenir. This is also included in the entrance.

If Sunday isn't a national holiday it is safe to assume they are open.
