0269-62-2057Tanakaya Sake Brewery (田中屋酒造店)




This brewery has produced northern Nagano's "Mizuo" sake since 1868. This sake is produced with local rice, and water sourced from springs at the foothills of Mt. Mizuo in nearby Nozawa Onsen Village. In fact, 80% of the rice is cultivated in fields less than 5 kilometers from the brewery. Using brewing techniques passed down for 6 generations, the brewery creates fragrant, deliciously smooth sakes, which pairs perfectly with Japanese cuisine. 
The brewery is opened to visitors once a year, on the 3rd Saturday of February. (1,000 yen, reservation required) In addition to a tour and sake tasting, limited production specialty sake is sold at this yearly event.
Tanakaya brewery brand sake cups are also perfect as gifts. (Small: 158 yen, Large: 315 yen)
