Review of Toko no Sakagura

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/05/07 Interested in Saké? This is for You.
Tucked away in a small mountain city in Yamagata Perfecture is a hidden jewel. Owned and run by the same Kojima family since 1597, Toko not only makes great saké, they also own this fantastic museum...

例年ならば背丈を超えるような雪が積もっている筈の米沢ですが、今年は驚くほど少ないようです。とけ残った雪が所々に積み重なっているぐらいでした。上杉神社の隣にある博物館や酒蔵などを観て回りました。酒蔵は、古い道具など展示してあって良かったです。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
