Otokoyama Sake Brewery and Sake Museum Hokkaido

Hello everyone! Seperti yang kalian tau kalau bulan kemarin aku baru saja jalan jalan ke Hokkaido. Hokkaido sendiri merupakan salah satu pulau di Jepang yang terkenal dengan keindahan wisata alamnya. Nah hari ini aku akan memberikan salah satu rekomendasi tempat wisata di Hokkaido yang wajib kamu kunjungi yaitu Otokoyama Sake Brewery & Sake Museum

Otokoyama Sake Brewery and Sake Museum Hokkaido

Otokoyama is Asahikawa’s most famous sake, both within Japan and worldwide. The spacious complex offers plenty to occupy the senses including a front seat view of the sake making process, a sake museum, a beautiful Japanese garden filled with flowers from May to September, a garden-side shaded rest area to unwind, as well as a delightful sake tasting room and gift shop.

The sake museum is comprehensive in covering all facets of Otokoyama's rich sake brewing heritage, including ancient sake-related literature and art. In fact, one of Japan’s most famous Ukiyoe painters, Utamaro, portrayed Otokoyama sake in a few of his works, forever affording Otokoyama a place in both the sake brewing and art histories of Japan.

Otokoyama is one of the most internationally renowned sake brands in the world and this exposure is reflected in Otokoyama's approach to welcoming international guests. Their facility is exceptionally tourist friendly, with brochures, and some signs written in English, Korean, and Chinese, and with English speaking staff available to assist with tasting and inquiries.

The museum also features the tools utilized in the making of sake over the years, old style bottles and ceramics, discontinued standard containers, medals and trophies from dozens of national and international contests, as well as news articles and maps. All the while, the casual visitor can peer through the huge glass windows to the brewing and storage rooms on the brew floor.
