The museum is a renovated section of a former sake brewery built at the end of the Edo period. With over 130 years of history and tradition, it is an impressive building with thick columns and rafters running along the ceiling, as well as a lingering aroma of Japanese sake. They offer sake tasting on-site and the opportunity to brew your own personalized sake. They sell pottery, bamboo products, bamboo charcoal coffee, Japanese paper made from bamboo, and other bamboo-themed foods and products. You can also enjoy delicious handmade soba noodles and sake at the Tanizaki restaurant.
