What’s Special about our Sake Tour?

Now is one of the Best Seasons to Visit Kyoto!

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting our page! Here is another tour report of Kyoto Insider Sake Experience!

Autumn is the great season to visit Kyoto. The weather is stable (except when we have typhoon!) and the temperature is not too high like summer. (In summer it could get over 35 degrees!). On this day, we welcomed the groups from India, Germany, France and Switzerland. One of the guests has been working at the winery in her country and shared the story what it is like. She told us it would be good to learn what sake and wine have in common in terms of making process.

Well, she picked the right tour to do so – our tours are focused on learning all the basics of sake as well as tasting varieties of sake 🙂 It is always honer to hear from our guests that they like our tour a lot! We know sometimes it is difficult to find the activity that you really want to experience as you never know what it’s like until you actually join it.

What’s Special about our Sake Tour?

All sake tastings you get in Kyoto Insider Sake Experience are carefully selected to help better understanding when learning sake. Through our expert-lead tasting session you’ll get the chance to learn the unique characteristics of different varieties of sake. Also discover which type you most prefer and how to identify your favourites on menus and bottle labels.You will get a ‘cheatsheet’ in the tour, which helps you to remember what you learn and to buy a bottle at the sake shop on your own.
At the brewery visit, you can go in to production area of Gekkeikan, the largest sake producing company in Kyoto. Although the area isn’t opened for everyone, you can go in there if you are with us. (There is a possibility of skipping production area when it’s too crowded with tourists in the brewery of Gekkeikan (月桂冠). )
