Kametaya Sake Brewery is located on the outskirts of Matsumoto City, inviting visitors from all over the world to visit, learn and enjoy Japan’s national drink. Operating since 1869, Kametaya offers tours that walk visitors through the brewery and brewing process, the Meiji-era historic family homestead, and of course a guided sake-tasting.
