Chichibunishiki (Yao Honten)
The Chichibu region is blessed with rich seasonal nature and high-quality water, and sake has long been brewed here. The brewery was founded here in 1749. Chichibu Nishiki, their main product, won first prize at the sake fair for seven years in a row since 2002. The brewery performs all processes including polishing the rice.
The brewery and adjoining brewery museum which exhibits include traditional tools and sake bowls, are surrounded by a forest. It is a beautiful sake tourist spot which takes about 1 hour more from Tokyo by train.
