Yoshinogawa Sake Museum "Joh-gura"

Yoshinogawa Sakemyujiamu Jogura

Visit Yoshinogawa Sake Museum in Nagaoka, Niigata and enjoy limited-edition sake

Founded in 1548, the Yoshinogawa brewery is located in Settaya District, Nagaoka City, Niigata. It is a Taisho-era (1912-1926) building that was once used as a bottling factory, but was renovated and reopened in 2019 as a brewery. The triangular steel frame "truss construction" on the ceiling is one of the building's architectural features and a registered tangible cultural property of Japan. Inside the museum are exhibits on the history of Yoshinogawa and its sake brewing, as well as the SAKE bar where you can try limited-edition sake and craft beer. There is also a store that sells snacks as well as sake. This is a facility where you can enjoy a wide range of things about Yoshinogawa, such as learning about the area, drinking its sake on the premises, and purchasing the sake as souvenirs. There is also a sake brewing experience game that can be played by children using a tablet. In addition, Settaya is surrounded by miso and soy sauce breweries, so you can walk around the town and enjoy the aroma of koji (rice malt).
