See What Kyoto has to Offer!

However, City of Kyoto has lots of places to visit, have you visited other part of Kyoto outside the city? If it is your second time or you simply love nature and being away from the city area, you may want to visit Tango region located in the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture. This region is about 2 hours away from Kyoto Station so it’s worth staying over rather than just visiting as a day-trip.

Good news for nature lovers. Tango has a nostalgic atmosphere with lots of nature. As well as mountains, rivers and ocean, there are many sake breweries in Tango. Here we are introducing one of yearly sake event there.

Making a Visit to Sake Breweries in Tango

Tango Tenshu Festival is a sake breweries opening event in the end of May. It is a festival organized by Kuramoto, local breweries. You can enjoy local sake as well as events such as a tour inside breweries and food stalls of local food. Therefore at the Tango Tenshu Festival, you can enjoy the “excellent taste to drink at the place where sake is born”, which is not found in regular sake festivals.

At this event, to go to other brewery, you may need to travel by a local train or shuttle bus. If you can enjoy traveling as a part of journey of the lovely Tango region, you would enjoy it a lot! Tango is a region of sea. Enjoying the scenery of nature and visiting sake breweries by local trains and buses would be finding ‘a real Japan’.

Some of the breweries in Tango open for visitors only when this event happens. You can taste a limited edition of sake in the event too. In addition to the taste of local sake and fresh food from the local area, you can see the real life of Japanese people – food culture and traditions at sake breweries.
