Fun Tour with Amazing Hosts
Troy_T, Aug 2023
Hikaru and Yuka are a great team. They educated us on the beginnings of how sake was made in Japan. Then we drank to our hearts content. The sake was amazing but the company was better. My Mom and I had a great time on this tour and would truly recommend it to anyone going to Kyoto
Super fun!

Hikari was a great tour operator! Very knowledgeable about the sake history and culture. We would definitely recommend this tour to those who love sake and would like to learn more about the brewing experience and history.
Tipsy in a good way!

We walked to a sake museum and then to a restaurant to have a tasting. The guide was very kind and shared stories along the way.
Fantastic tour

Fantastic tour. Loved spending the afternoon learning about sake making and finally sake tasting. Thank you to Hikari for a fabulous tour. She was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended tour.
Fun Sake Brewery Tour

My husband and I were the only two people in our group so we ended up having a private tour. Hikaru, our guide, was very sweet and let us go at our own pace. The final bar where we had our main sake tasting was off the beaten path and I'm sure we wouldn't have found it on our own. It was definitely worth the money!
