We can't wait to see you online! Let's toast together over Okuhida Shuzo's sake and cream cheese!
The sake brewery of this tour, Okuhida Shuzo is located in the most southern part of Gero City, Gifu Prefecture. The start of their business dates back in 1720 and they just have celebrated their 300th anniversary in 2020.
The brewery has solely been run by the Takagi's family and now it's passed on to the 11th generation. This virtual tour will be hosted by 2 ladies, the brewery's 12th-generation-to-be, Ms. Risa Takagi and the 216WORKS' guide, Ms. Reiko Sasaki.
On this tour, you will be introduced to the brewery's historical documents and items, learn how sake is made, and visit inside the brewery with Risa in which sake making is just in progress.
