Sawanotsuru Sake Museum沢の鶴資料館

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

The Sawanotsuru Sake Museum is 10 minutes on foot from Hanshin Oishi Station in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture. Housed in the Oishi Kura that was built over 170 years ago in the late Edo period, the museum educates the public about sake brewing culture and features exhibits on traditional Nada Sake brewing. These include valuable sake making equipment like large sake barrels from Sawanotsuru's 300-plus-year history, as well as models of Japanese ships such as Kitamae / Sengoku-bune that were used for sake transport. There is also a museum shop where visitors can enjoy free tastings of unprocessed sake.

          Hyogo Areas


          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
