    名前が同じ、「ウイスキー竹鶴ピュアモルト」が二人とも大好きな友人と期待してここを目指しました。中に入れていただ陳列のお酒。酒好きな二人は店の方にお酒をバックに二人の写真も撮っていただき、お薦めの吟醸酒と500円で記念に竹鶴と刻まれたおちょこを買いました。店の雰囲気もよく期待どおりでした。神戸に帰り、友人から電話。「飲んだ?」二人の味見は、灘の酒以外にも贔屓にしている市島町の2つの酒造会社や、東北...

    After visiting the wonderful Kamotsuru sake brewery, it was a bit of a letdown coming here. The place was cold and uninspiring, and only two varieties were available for tasting.

    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.
