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.

          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.
