Introducing kokushu museums around Japan.
Renovated from a 200-year-old brewery, the museum operates under the producer of Takasago (est. in 1791) and displays sake brewing tools and sake vessels.
Run by the brewery that produces Kinryo (est. in 1789), the museum welcomes visitors to learn about sake brewing in the Edo period (1600~1868) and to view a great number of sake vessels.
Operated by Kawatsura Shuzo (est. 1891) the museum boasts five buildings registered as Tangible Cultural Properties. One of these buildings, a former rice storehouse, is available for a tour.
Established in 1904 as a national research organization focused on alcoholic drinks in Japan, the institute conducts experiments, analysis, and research related to alcohol. The experiment building is available for a tour.
