Experience the history and culture of Nishiyama Sake Brewery

When you enter the main building, the traditional Japanese wooden interior will calm your mind. The counter of the shop is a reused sake barrel that was used for sake brewing in the past.

Haiku and paintings by writers and painters who visited Nishiyama Sake Brewery are on display, giving you a sense of their attachment to Japanese sake culture.

Nishiyama Sake Brewery's Junmai Daiginjo ``Kotsuzumi'' is recommended by the brewer!

1. Sake tasting class

At the sake tasting class, you can enjoy seasonal menus that pair a wide variety of sake with Tamba ingredients and fermented foods.

The snacks made with seasonal Tamba vegetables were created by a nutritionist at Nishiyama Sake Brewery, and I felt a sense of warmth. I was also impressed by the pairing with sake.

At the ``Sake Tasting Class,'' which is led directly by the brewer, you can discover new ways to enjoy alcohol, including not only the taste of alcohol, but also the ``color, aroma, and alcoholic episodes.'' I wanted to tell someone the story of my own Junmai Daiginjo ``Kotsuzumi.''

2. Sake brewery tour

You can tour the Shikijozo sake brewery here in Hyogo Tamba, which produces sake all year round.

You can also see haiku monuments written by writers and painters with whom they have ties, as well as the well that serves as the water source for sake brewing.

We also toured the rice fields where sake rice is being harvested. It is surrounded by mountains and receives plenty of sunlight. By growing good sake rice in a good environment, you can make good sake.

Campaign to enjoy Junmai Daiginjo “Kotsuzumi” as a tangible cultural property

A room of Sansan-an, a state guest house that is a tangible cultural property and is not normally open to the public, will be specially opened to the public during the ``Hyogo Destination Campaign July-September 2023.'' A ``sake-tasting experience'' using Daiginjo ``Kotsuzumi'' is being held with the guidance of the brewer.

Entrance to Sansan-an State Guest House, a registered tangible cultural property currently open to the public

The Japanese-style lounge, where many famous writers and painters once gathered around a small drum, is a place where you can fully experience the breath of history.

Haiku poems and paintings by writers and painters who visited Tamba City are displayed in the alcove.
