Sake Museum Information
Hakushika Memorial Museum of Sake (or Hakushika Sake Museum) was established in 1982. In commemoration of the 320th anniversary of the foundation of Tatsuuma-Honke Brewing Company Limited, also known as Hakushika Sake, it was founded with the purpose of handing down the history of traditional sake brewing to future generations.
Our museum consists of two buildings: Sakagura-kan and Kinen-kan.
Built in 1869, Sakagura-kan is a former wooden sake brewery (sakagura). Here authentic sake brewing tools, including those you can have a hands-on experience with, are exhibited alongside videos and songs of sake brewing.
At Kinen-kan, three exhibition rooms showcase various works of art, historical documents and materials related to sake. In particular various works regarding cherry blossoms from the collection of the late Sasabe Shintaro called “Sasabe Sakura Collection” have been deposited by Nishinomiya City.
Our exhibition schedule, events and available times for museum tours conducted in English are posted in the museum calendar on the front page.
You can also enjoy shopping and meals at Hakushika Classics shop and restaurant, which is located right beside the museum.
