Nakano Sake Brewery

(Kitsuki City, Oita Prefecture)

We use high-quality, mineral-rich natural water that comes from 200 meters underground in our brewery, and mainly use locally sourced ingredients to produce sake that is locally produced for local consumption.

“Chiebijin Junmaishu” won the KURA MASTER 2018 highest award, the President’s Award.

``Chiebijin Junmai Ginjo Yamada Nishiki'' received 90 Parker points, an important evaluation standard used around the world.

``Chiebijin Junmai Daiginjo Yamada Nishiki'' won an award at the ``2017 National New Sake Appraisal'' and received the Gold Award at the ``Sake Selection.''

Participation benefits

On the day of the bus tour, we will hold an event called the Cherry Blossom Drinking Festival, where we will give away limited-edition goods for the opening of the brewery. Includes original ochoko, wristband and 2,000 yen worth of food and drink tickets. Please enjoy delicious drinks and food.

Minami Sake Brewery

(Kunisaki City, Oita Prefecture)

``Toppai Honkaku Shochu 25%'' won the KURA MASTER gold medal at a competition in Paris, France.

We use a special vertical distillation machine with a height of 10 meters, which removes much of the relatively heavy bitterness to the bottom, creating a unique and refreshing taste.

By dividing the raw material barley into three batches instead of the usual two batches, we have created an easy-to-drink, elegant flavor.

Female brewers are active in sake brewing.

Participation benefits

We will provide you with a place to drink on the spot.

Kayashima Sake Brewery

(Kunisaki City, Oita Prefecture)

We advocate ``qualityism'' without being influenced by trends, and our ideal is to create ``delicious sake'' that harmonizes the five tastes of ``sweet, sour, spicy, bitter, and astringent.'' The name ``Nishinoseki'' sake was given by the second generation head of the brewery in the 1890s, with a promise of dedication and dedication to becoming the representative sake of western Japan.

Kyushu-style sake that brings out the flavor of your dishes.

Participation benefits

We sell alcoholic beverages for a limited time only.

In April 2018, the "Inbound Promotion Association OITA" was established as a collection of individuals and companies in Oita Prefecture that promote inbound tourism (travel by foreign visitors to Japan). Later, in July 2023, it was reorganized and renamed as the General Incorporated Association "Inbound National Promotion Council" and focused on four issues in the tourism industry: "Developing tourism human resources," "Discovering tourism materials and collecting information," and "Disseminating information and promoting." In order to solve the problem of "improving the receiving environment," we are developing various projects nationwide based on specific measures.
