Known in Japanese as ‘nishi-no-jojima’ (‘Jojima in the west’), in contrast with ‘higashi-no-nada’ (‘Nada in the east’), Jojima is one of Japan’s two most famous places for sake production. Brewed using high quality rice and water, Jojima sake gained its nationwide renown thanks to Japan’s waterway transportation system, dating back to the Edo era.
Today, Jojima is home to a variety of sake tasting events. Currently taking place, visitors are able to purchase a sake tasting cup for 300JPY, enjoy a free shuttle bus service, as well as brewery tours. What’s more, sake tasting is available at each sake shop in the area.

【date & time】Saturday 10th & Saturday 17th November, 10:00 – 16:00
【price】300JPY for one sake tasting cup
【venue】 participating breweries in Mizuma, Daizenmachi, Jojima
Shuttle bus service to the sake breweries operates from Daizenji station (on the Nishitetsu line)
