Mt Rokko & Sake Brewery

Scenery and sake await you on this tour. You will drive up to the Mt Rokko Observatory. At almost 3,000 feet, Mt Rokko is the highest peak in the mountain range that spreads 19 miles from northeast to southwest, north of the cities of Kobe, Ashiya and Nishinomiya. Then from the top of the mountain, take a cable car down. Next, you’ll visit the Sake Brewery Museum in Kobe. No history of sake is complete without mentioning Nada—the Nada district in Kobe is known as the mecca of sake brewing and it is full of cultural heritage sites that evoke the area’s long association with sake.

I don't know if they always go there but we visited the Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum and Brewery, one of the few remaining sake manufacturers that still uses traditional brewing methods.for some of their product. The museum has life sized tableaus illustrating the steps in the sake making process. And the tasting room at the end of the tour provided a wide range of sake to try. There was a small fee to taste the two ultra-premium sakes and it was definitely worth it. This is in addition to all the free products available.
Those who wished could tour the factory next door. It's that actual working plant so what you see will vary depending on the days activities but the guide was very informative and the walk through was interesting.
The view from Mt. Rokko is excellent. From our 3,000 foot vantage point we could easily see the Amsterdam docked on the other side of the bay. A very nice day.
