Fushimi is a city known for brewing and among the vast number of breweries in this town, Gekkeikan is the oldest. At Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum, which is managed by Gekkeikan, visitors can experience Gekkeikan's sake making process and Fushimi's long history of sake brewing. You can see the tools used in the brewing and shipping of sake, historic sake labels and posters of Gekkeikan sake. Although there is an entrance fee, visitors receive a sake gift as a part of their visit.
There are sake and wine tastings available after the visit, and a tour of unrefined sake fermentation is also available through appointment. In addition, the museum itself has historic value because the building is a renovated sake storage built in the Meiji era.
In the "Gekkeikan Sake Kobo" located in the brewery of the internal storage building located next to the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum, Tajima-style sake brewers brew sake based on traditional methods. Enjoy the atmosphere filled with the scent of steamed rice and fermentation.
