Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum

Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum

The white-walled sake breweries suit well the willow-lined canals in Fushimi, a famous home of sake. Amidst such scenes stands an early-twentieth-century sake brewery now converted into a sake archive. Pass through the lattice sliding door into the entrance to be greeted by the account room dating back to the Meiji period (1868-1912). Once in, visitors can learn about the various tools for the various sake-making processes along with illustrations of the actual work performed. Each era of the sake brewery and its work scenes are displayed stage by stage for easy understanding. Rare exhibits also include sake barrels covered with straw matting as well sake bottles and labels from the Meiji period. (Month checked: 2018.Dec, )
