Private Guided Tour
Saijo is readily accessible from Hiroshima Station. Take east-bound Sanyo Line about 35 minutes to go to JR Saijo St. The streets near the station along which several sake breweries stand are collectively called Sakagura-dori or Sake Brewery Street. It’s a happy surprise to see a group of breweries nestled so close to each other. Join a guided walking tour and taste refined sake and clear water essential for sake making at several breweries. Sampling sake is basically free of charge and you can bring back water for sake making in your bottles and it doesn’t cost a yen! Cafes and stores with local colors are also fun to explore.
