Sakagura Bar En

There is a cozy bar only 5 min walk from Momoyama-Goryo station, which is owned by Fujioka shuzo brewery. It is 5min walk from Momoyama-Goryo station. Be noted that the bar will be closed in the evening when the brewery closes.
The best thing here is that having the major sake from Fujioka shuzo brewery, a bottle of “Souku”. While you’re enjoying the sake and snacks, you can see sake in the process of brewing through the window. Their food menu is just for snacking, but every dishes is selected for matching to sake. When you are there try sake-leess raisin-butter. Sake-lees helps to have more rich flavour and it tastes totally different from the regular raisin-butter.
There’s also a “Sake manju (Japanese steamed sweet cake)” and “amazake (sake lees drink)”, for people who prefer to have alcohol free menu.
