Sake Brewery Sake-zukuri-no-mori

Sake-zukuri-no-mori is a sake brewery in Chichibu city, Saitama prefecture, and it's famous for its “Chichibunisiki”, the local sake brand of the Chichibu area. I visited the factory as well as the sake museum and it cost me only 200 yen. There was a nice guide who explained the process of sake brewing very well (in Japanese). The sake brewery was established in 1749, so there are many old brewing tools to be admired. Of course you can sample the sake, too, although I couldn't as I had to drive. I had amazakea instead, a sweet drink made from fermented rice. Access: Seibu-Chichibu station, then take a taxi for about 10 minutes.
