清酒博物館 / Sake Museum


Sake Museum is managed by Hokkaido's oldest Japanese sake maker - Nippon Seishu. The company’s main brand is Chitose Zuru. ‘Chitose’ means 1000 years and ‘zuru’ means crane. The name actually refers to the red-crowned crane, which inhabits Hokkaido. This museum is not large, but they show their history and exhibit sake-making instruments. Visitors can also enjoy free tasting. Interestingly, water pumped up from 150 meters below the ground to be used in making their sake is pouring at a well-like facility and it's free. Anyone can visit their factory is but a reservation is necessary for groups larger than 10 people.
