Kuncho Sake Brewery & Museum

Just about every town in Japan, large or small, has at least one sake brewery.


In Hita the biggest, Kuncho Shuzo Sake Brewery is located on the edge of Mamedamachi, the historic preservation district of the old town.


To get to the brewery's museum you walk through the front part of the brewery past the huge pots that cook the rice for the sake.


The "museum" is actually just the huge attic space filled with old barrels and assorted , mostly wooden, tools and equipment, some of which is labeled


It's quite a big space, filled with stuff, and would eprhaps be interesting to some.


They have a big shop with a wide range of sakes and masu cups available. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of sake, nor of most alcohol, so I can't comment on its quality.
