“I spent quite some time living in Japan and thought I knew something about sake. But during the tour I quickly realized that I’d only taken a tiny sip from the cup of sake knowledge. So much learning, so many sakes, and some fantastic new friends in just the course of a few days. I was a wonderful experience and wonderfully photogenic trip for a photographer to be on. It’s surely made me a sake lover for life.”

"A very special and everlasting memory for me and my wife. It is very well organised by our beautiful Etsuko and Shima, not to forget our fantastic Jason.  It was such an eye opener for us to embark on such a tour and no regret about the money spent, quite expensive you know but it's worth it."

"Outstanding. One of the most exciting trips of my life. The chance to understand clearly and feel all the senses on making sake is the goal of this tour. At the end of all you will make friends forever. I would definitely recommend and do the Sake Brewery Tour again."

“Sake Brewery Tours was one of the best trips that we have ever taken. Typically we like to travel on our own but the service that Etsuko provides is outstanding from the accommodations, breweries, food and the fabulous sake! Every detail is taken care of and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy. If you like sake & onsen, this is definitely the tour for you. We had such a great time and look forward to doing other tours!”

“Thank you Sake Brewery Tours for showing me a sake experience of a lifetime! My love and passion for sake has grown deeper as a result of my recent adventure in Japan with you. Thank you for opening my eyes to the beauty of the Japanese culture as well. This was the most organized and exciting tour I’ve ever been on and I can’t thank you enough for sharing the sake world and Niigata lifestyle with us. Truly beautiful and fascinating! Arigatō,”

“We really enjoyed traveling to Akita and Kansai with Sake Brewery Tours. We’ve traveled to Japan many times, but the sake and culinary treats we had with Etsuko were something we could not have put together ourselves. We met so many wonderful people at the breweries and we really appreciate sake even more”

“Even for a very well-traveled sojourner, Sake Tours organized trips that helped me discover regional Japanese culture, cuisine, and of course, sake in ways that I would never be able to arrange for myself. The small group size keeps the mood intimate and allows the organizers to take great care of guests. I look forward to each year’s exciting destinations.”
