Story & Recommendation
Fushimi district is famous for its breweries; drink sake while you enjoy historic Kyoto
Fushimi District has three distinct sides to it. First it is known for its sake breweries making use of the clear water of Fushimi, second it is famous as a connecting port between Kyoto and Osaka, and third it is famous for the Battle of Toba-Fushimi that took place here; a battle that can be said to have been the end of the Tokugawa shogunate. Still, Fushimi is most famous for its sake breweries. There are many famous breweries based in Fushimi like Gekkeikan and Kizakura. These breweries can be visited and some even have museums and have become popular sightseeing spots. You can take a sightseeing boat down the canal and admire the traditional Japanese houses and factories that line it; the canal gives you a glimpse into the industrial history of Kyoto. Here you can see another part of Fushimi besides Fushimi Inari-taisha, the world-famous shrine with countless tori gates.
