3 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

Join us in Saijo to visit 4-6 historic sake breweries and enjoy local lunch & snacks, with an English speaking local. We will take a stroll through the historic streets going from brewery to brewery to enjoy samples of local sake.

Our tour begins with a tasting and sake explanation at a representative brewery of Hiroshima Sake. We will learn about the brewing process (Please note: that the sake brewing process is not available to the public in Japan due to sanitary and health inspection regulations.)

Then, we will head off to try a local specialty hot-pot dish made with premium sake, and other tasting plates made with local ingredients (hot-pot must be ordered in advance so please no last-minute bookings are possible, but we may have an alternate lunch menu). After lunch, stroll the picturesque streets and go brewery hopping. At each brewery, we will be able to sample different kinds of sake. Visit a local cafe and enjoy sweets and a snack break inspired by Japanese Sake.
