Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum

[1st Floor]
Various sake production implements are on display, including a huge vat made of Japanese cedar once used for fermentation and other procedures. In the sake-tasting area, visitors can enjoy freshly pressed, unpasteurized sake that cannot be found anywhere else but at this sake brewery museum. Our store sells not only Hakutsuru Sake products, but many original museum goods as well. The jelly sake is especially popular.
[2nd Floor]
The various stages of making sake are depicted in detail, with displays of the cooling apparatus, koji culture room, and many other types of equipment. Traditional methods are explained with actual tools and video. The old brewhouse was converted into the museum itself, lending a highly realistic atmosphere to the display of these early sake brewing methods.
