For a small entry fee, you get educated about sake making, sample some sake, and also get a small bottle of sake to take home. Their restaurant was also wonderful! The neighborhood is nice to walk about, and other sake breweries are also within walking...More

So there's a lot of interesting sake related paraphernalia here, but I wouldn't say that it's a must see. The sake is only mediocre and you can be in and out in about 30 minutes. Not far off the subway though so if you get...More

If you like sake, this is definitely a must visit! Just a few stop from Fushimi Inari's station, we visited Gekkeikan after we were done with Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. The museum is in a quiet neighborhood, and if you have the time and interest, there's...More

We went for the sake tasting, but found the museum interesting. It was only 2 rooms but there was lots of information in Japanese, English, and I think Cantonese and Mandarin. We did the tasting, which was two sakes and a plum wine, and we...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.
