Sake Cellar in Kin Limestone Cave

Other Sightseeing Spot
This natural limestone cave is located in Kin Town, Okinawa Prefecture. Located 30 meters underground, the 270-meter-long cave is believed to be the birthplace of Okinawa's dragon god religion. The cave, which still retains several places of worship, is used as a natural storehouse for aging awamori. The storehouse even offers a bottle aging service. Customers can have their koshu (aged awamori) shipped to them after five, 12, or 20 years of aging. Tours of the storehouse are offered at 11:00, 14:00, and 15:30 each day. Parking is available.
