Koganei Sake Brewery, established over 200 years ago, is the official brewery for Sakarimasu sake. Situated near the entrance to Nanasawa Onsen in the lush city of Atsugi, it produces sake using the famous mineral waters at the eastern foot of Mount Tanzawa, along with carefully selected sake rice. The brewery also produces a large number of other products using locally sourced ingredients, such as shochu (a Japanese distilled spirit), Sagami Beer (a craft beer range), craft gin, and liqueur, and there is a shop on the premises where you can purchase these. You can also book a tour of the brewery, complete with a tasting session (minimum of 6 people, reservation required, suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic).
