Satsuma Shuzo Shochu Distillery, Meijigura薩摩酒造花渡川蒸溜所 明治蔵

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

A distillery open to tourists operated by Satsuma Shuzo, the company which makes Satsuma Shiranami shochu. Shochu making was perfected in the late Meiji period, and even today this distillery is still deeply colored by the atmosphere and craftsmanship of this era. The distillery presents the culture and history behind shochu, and visitors can also see earthenware vessels and tools actually used to make shochu throughout the years. With an advance reservation, visitors can also tour the distillery itself and see it in action, plus enjoy a free shochu tasting session. The adjoining Kedogawa Beer House restaurant serves authentic French cuisine together with sweet potato shochu and sweet potato beer.

          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.
