Brewery visits

Daishichi welcomes brewery visits. Admission is charged and includes a tasting.
Brewery visits are possible on weekdays during working hours; we are closed on Saturdays, Sundays and National Holidays.

In the period that sake brewing takes place (generally between late October and late March), it is not possible to enter the brewery with visitors, due to the sensitivity of the kimoto process; at that time we offer only a tasting in the main hall of our company.

We can not receive groups larger than 4 persons.

When you are interested, please make an advance appointment by email in English or Japanese to info@daishichi.com. In that mail, please mention the preferred date and time, the number and full names of the visitors and which course you select (see below). It is possible that the slot you prefer is already occupied, in which case we have to ask you to look for another time or date.

The tour is available in Japanese only (although we show an English or Chinese video and have pamphlets in several languages).

There are two courses:

● General Course. ¥1,500 per person (incl. tax).
This program includes a tasting of 5 items and takes about 60 min (same admission price for persons who do not take part in the tasting).
・In the brewing season (late autumn – early spring) when it is not possible for visitors to enter the brewery, admission is reduced to ¥1,000 per person (incl. tax). The visit consists of a video and a tasting of 5 items, duration about 45 min (same admission price for persons who do not take part in the tasting).

● Premium Course. ¥3,500 per person (incl. tax).
This program includes a tasting of 7 items and takes about 90 min (same admission price for persons who do not take part in the tasting).
・In the brewing season (late autumn - early spring) when it is not possible for visitors to enter the brewery, admission is reduced to ¥3,000 per person (incl. tax). The visit consists of a video and a tasting of 7 items, duration about 90 min (same admission price for persons who do not take part in the tasting).

The tour is available in Japanese only. However, on request, we can arrange an English-speaking interpreter from the association ‘Omotenashi Guide Fukushima’ (interpreter’s fee: ¥5,500 per visit).
