Sake Brewery and Tasting TourBus Tours

Sake Brewery and Tasting Tour

Learn the secrets of the local Japanese Sake, an integral part of the Japanese Culture! Sake is one of the most famous alcoholic beverages in Japan and is mainly made with water and rice. Therefore, a good quality of Sake requires a great natural environment, such as you find in Nagano Prefecture, and more especially here in Matsumoto. This area is blessed with natural mineral-rich waters from the surrounding mountains and high quality rice from local farms! Despite Sake tasting much like wine, the production of Sake is more like brewing beer and relies on similar fermentation techniques. Learn all the different steps involved in producing Sake and experience a tour of a real Sake Brewery. Sample some of the different local Sake and discover all the secrets of producing great Sake for yourself! Please note that in accordance with Japanese laws, people less than 20 years old are not allowed to drink alcohol. Available in English and French.
