    Nara Pref. Sakuraishi Miwa 510
    This is a sake brewery located on Prefectural Route 199 in Miwa, Sakurai City. It is considered as the birthplace of sake brewing and the only brewery in Miwa, where the god of sake is enshrined. Sake such as Mimurosugi is brewed here. Also, a sake tasting tour based on Miwa, the holy land of sake is available (reservations a week in advance are required).

    大神神社への参拝帰りに寄らせていただいた。けっこうな種類の試飲をお願いしてしまったが、快く呑ませて下さった。いただいたお酒はどれも口当たりがよく、帰り道が遠いので一本しか購入出来なかったが、近ければ何本でも買ってしまいそう。

    Nara Pref. Narashi Nishinokyouchou 215-1
    You’ll find this artisan tenement about a five-minute walk from Nishinokyo Station. The facility is run by seven artisans who utilize traditional Yamato techniques. Their workshops face the street, and they create tea whisks, plaited cords, “ittobori” wood sculptures, Akahada pottery, writing brushes, and dry lacquer for all to see. The items on display inside the workshops are for sale as well. The nearby “Sumi no Museum” hosts exhibits on special inks and paintings. Entry is available with a joint ticket offered by the tenement.
  • Nishiuchi Sake Brewery

    Nara Pref. Sakuraishi Shimo 3
    This sake brewery established in the early Meiji period makes the sake used for sake offerings at Tanzan Shrine. It is notable for its Daimyoshoyazake brand and its kijoshu (sake made by substituting water with sake in some processes). The brewery's amber Ruijoshu received the top marks in the koshu (aged sake) category at the International Wine Challenge 2017, earning it the Koshu Trophy. After being brewed to a Sake Meter Value of at least -50, this sake is aged for 10 years inside a cellar. It has a substantial sweetness unlike that of a kijoshu. The brewery is popular for its broad lineup, which ranges from fresh, unrefined and unfiltered sake as well as fine junmai daiginjo.

    香芝で、今も残る酒蔵は鎌田の金鼓と五位堂の沢田酒造。 大倉本家は金鼓や天の二上というお酒を作っています。 つい10数年前はすぐ近くの今パーティーハウスのある場所で、奈良県の全神社の御神酒用の水田があり、水田に鳥居がありました。 香芝の銘酒、金鼓・天の二上ぜひ飲んでください

Nara Areas

around-area-map

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
