Small Tip when visiting Brewery

The koji mold that saccharifies the steamed rice required for sake brewing is a delicate bacterium that is defeated by the strong bacteria contained in natto. Therefore, it is said that brewers do not eat natto during the sake brewing period. In addition, please refrain from eating yogurt, mandarin orange, perfume, pickles on the day of the brewery visit.
