Originated in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Otokoyama is one of the most famous sake brands in Japan. Boasting 340 years of sake-producing heritage, this museum tells the history of Otokoyama through ukiyoe woodblock prints. It's like using one traditional Japanese art form to learn about a quintessential aspect of Japanese cuisine. How interesting!

Besides that, you can also try out limited edition sakes. Yummy!

2) Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum

Originally a sake brewery, Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum really transports you back into time as it still smells like old wood and straw! Here, you can really understand the sake making process in great detail because you will see large-size mannequins positioned strategically for each and every step. These mannequins are thoughtfully complemented with videos that include detailed explanations of the steps.

What's more, you get to enjoy a free tasting for the Junmai nama-genshu - made from 100% premium Yamada-nishiki rice, arguably the best rice out there for sake making!

3) Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum

Fushimi in Kyoto was developed as a sake production site as a result of the thriving Fushimi Port. Gekkeikan Sake Museum thus affords you exclusive insights into the history of sake production in Fushimi. Like Hakutsuru Sake Brewery, Gekkeikan Sake Museum is housed in an old sake brewery, so it showcases authentic equipment like vessels.

What greets you upon entering this museum is traditional chants sang by sake makers, so not only is this museum informative, but also it has an atmosphere to match!
