Noguchi Naohiko Sake Institute 農口尚彦研究所

Taste sake at a master's institute

Noguchi Naohiko is one of the most famous living sake brewers. During his career, which started in 1949 at the age of 16, he spearheaded the revival of traditional methods and the development of delicate ginjo varieties. In 2017, he came out of retirement to open this brewery with the goal of teaching future master brewers.

Visitors can reserve a spot in the intimate tasting room to try the institute's creations and learn how they were made. Its modern, minimalist design complements the views of pristine rice paddies to one side and the state-of-the-art sake pressing room to the other.
