YOSHINOYA SAKE BREWERY

Dating back over 300 years, the Yoshinoya Sake Brewery offers a wide selection of Japanese sake and Zenko-ji miso. The flavours are rich and varied, and sake tastings are offered so you can try the different qualities (non-alcoholic options also available).

 

If you are interested in sake tasting, combined with a visit to the Snow Monkey Park and Zenko-ji Temple, our 1-Day Tour in Nagano: Snow Monkeys,  Zenko-ji Temple, and Sake will give you the full Northern Nagano experience (available all year round).
