    Visit a 150 year old sake brewery in Tokoname, a famous pottery town just outside of Nagoya. Learn about sake production, see the techniques used for production, and taste the Hakurou Sake. Enjoy the pottery town of Tokoname, also known as the Maneki Neko Town.



    South of Nagoya, close by the coast lies a little town with a rich history. At the end of the 12th Century, Tokoname was known for its pottery and ceramics. Tokoname town is a historic pottery town; jars and cups produced there seem to be perfect for preserving and tasting the delicous Hakurou Sake, also produced in the area. Combining the use of pure, natural ingredients and traditional techniques and tools, a superior quality sake is produced – their sake has won multiple awards over the years.

    During this tour, we are going to learn more about sake production with a visit to a 150 year old brewery. Indulge in sake tasting (gift bottle included*) before exploring the pottery town of Tokoname, a prominent center for “Maneki Neko” in Japan.
