  • Learn about the brewing process and dedication to sake making at Hananoka Sake Brewery’s gallery.
  • Tasting of three types (currently suspended due to COVID-19, to be resumed after the situation settles).
  • Visit and pray for health at four out of the eight deities by car.
  • If time permits, a visit to the ‘Kanakuri Shiso Birthplace Memorial Hall’ is also possible.


A tour that takes you by car to four of the eight deities, includes a visit to a sake brewery, and offers an experience of life in Wamizu Town. Hananoka Sake Brewery, once the site of the Kanakuri family’s brewery, inherited its license when the family closed down its operations. The brewery is renowned for producing small batches of high-quality sake.

Recommended Points

Founded in 1902, the brewery is known for its fragrant and sweet tasting sake. Committed to using locally-sourced rice from Wamizu Town, the brewing process utilizes groundwater from the brewery’s own well. They also use rice varieties like Kumamoto’s No. 9 koji and Hozaki, focusing on local branding. Inspired by the ‘domaine’ concept in wine, they are dedicated to brewing with their own rice, practicing pesticide-free and fertilizer-free cultivation. This brewery offers much to learn as a small regional business working on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
