There was a tour of inspection at each brewery and we learned about sake brewing.
After the inspection was sake tasting.
We tried various sakes at dinner too. After the inspection and the tasting, everyone became a sake expert!
Of course, the food was super beautiful. Seasonal, fresh, local, well cooked.
Small trains run through the beauty of nature, taking us to the historical small towns where the breweries are.
We would like to thank those who joined us on the tour and the staff at all the breweries for making this a memorable experience.
