Satsuma Kinzangura焼酎蔵 薩摩金山蔵

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

This refined sake brewery, Kagoshima’s foremost, is located a 10-minute drive from JR Kushikino Station. Utilizing a 120-kilometer-long tunnel dug as part of the Kushikino Mine which once supported the bygone Satsuma Domain, the brewery produces shochu liquors based on recipes predating the Meiji period. Visitors can ride a mine trolley and view the earthenware vessels used for brewing and at the same time experience the vestiges of what was once a prosperous mine. The brewery’s shop sells gifts and souvenirs such as local specialty products and Satsuma Kinzangura brand shochus and refines sakes. Visitors can also relax in the adjoining brewery café.

Reviewed:2019/05/15 意外と楽しかった金山蔵
金山の跡地をイモ焼酎の蔵元と焼酎の歴史を学べるミュージアムとして活用。
木造の立派な佇まいの建物でまず、驚き。
鹿児島の北さつま地域の田舎ですが、川内のツルの越冬地の近くなので、見学する価値はあります。
見せ場は旧金山構内にトロッコに乗っての醸造所見学。
内部に入ると焼酎の香りがしてきます。
Reviewed:2019/04/05 トロッコに乗れる
元金鉱山だったところを濱田酒造が買い取り焼酎蔵にしているようです。
トロッコは720円で乗れ、大体1時間くらい掛かります。焼酎を買って保存して貰えるサービスも有るようです。

トロッコは、テンション上がったけど。
到着先が、暗いしべちゃべちゃでめちゃめちゃ滑る。
もう行かないかな。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
