Kitagawahonke Okinaya in Fushimi is a sake shop that has been in the sake business for over 350 years, famous for their sake called Tomio
The history of Kitagawahonke Okinaya begun in the year 1657, and at this historic sake shop you can not only buy their most famous sake, Tomio, but you can also get shochu and umeshu (plum liquor). The shop is in a machiya-style building full of the historic atmosphere of Kyoto, and on their shelves you can see many types of sake, like their famous Tomio.
