    Hiroshima Pref. Takeharashi Tadanouminakamachi 1-2-43
    This by reservation only factory tour facility is located in Takehara City, Hiroshima Prefecture. This is where you can experience making jam and go on a factory tour and taste jam in the refurbished old Aohata factory. In addition, it has an adjoining jam shop and Jam Deck cafe, and is visited by many tourists.

    ジャム作り体験を是非お勧めします。アオハタ社員の方が非常に丁寧に教えてくれて大人が楽しめる最高レベルのイベントです。実費レベルの価格で体験させてもらっていいのかなと思うくらい。体験中には試食もあるので、是非ここでしか買えないジャムもあるので、お土産、自宅用に是非。駅からも遠くないので、車旅じゃない方も気軽に訪問できます。

    竹原町並み保存地区のメインストリートに面した1733年から続く古い造り酒屋さんです。日本酒らしさをあるがままに追求した、ある意味で媚びない、ちょっと個性的な純米酒を送り出されています。これは、竹鶴政孝の「良い物は必ず売れる」の信念に通じるものを感じました。 作り手のこだわりを理解しつつも、家族へのお土産に少し飲みやすい純米吟醸の生酒を選びました。 是非、酒蔵に足を運んで、好みの1本を選んでみてくだ...

    西条酒蔵巡りで白牡丹にも行きました。見学では棟方志功のラベルの展示があって、お酒のラベルに棟方志功があったんだと勉強になりました。ラベルが一番楽しめて小さな美術館に来た感じでした。

    Hiroshima Pref. Higashihiroshimashi Saijouokamachi 6-9
    This is a small sake brewery established in 1912 located in Saijyouoka Town, Higashihiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture. The numerous high quality sakes brewed using the local soft water including the Sourin Nama, have a refreshing and refined distinctive taste. In the premises there is a whole-sale store and the company’s brand sake and sake-ware are sold. The five-sake set which has five main quality sakes included to compare the taste, is a popular souvenir. The traditional Japanese style restaurant Kappo Shinsuke also operates in a renovated sake cellar.

    事前に調べた結果、賀茂鶴や白牡丹など有名で百貨店でに出ていたりしますが、山陽鶴酒造は百貨店に出ないし好きなにごりがあったので行ってみました。お目当てのお酒はありましたが、試飲するのに有料ですしたね。それも有料という量ではなく試飲程度の量でした。買わないと思われたのでしょうか??お目当てのお酒は好みの味で美味しいのに飲程度の量でお金取るとは…。今回は買いましたが、次回西条に行っても寄らないでしょう。

Hiroshima Areas

around-area-map

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
