Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum Tours

Just because it is a museum does not mean that the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum is not functional. This operational sake brewery introduces visitors to the history and technical components of sake brewing. Located in the heart of an old sake brewing district, many of the buildings and breweries have been standing since the Edo era. Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum itself was founded in 1637, making it one of the region’s oldest breweries. 

The charm of this Museum is its attention to detail. The brewery is in an old-fashioned, traditional sake house. Japanese songs about sake and sake brewing play throughout the museum. One of the main displays features over 6,000 brewing tools, considered by many to be cultural relics. Of course, the highlight of the tour is the sake tasting itself, where some of the area’s best is on display.

Practical Info

The Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum is located within a five-minute walk from Chushojima Station on the Keihan Subway Line. The museum is open from 9:30am to 4:30pm every day. It is closed on New Year holidays and for the O-Bon Festival in August. Admission fees are 300 yen ($3) for adults with discounts for children.
