Taste seasonal sake at a long-established sake brewery in Fushimi
"Okinaya" is a directly managed retail store created by Kitagawa Honke, a long-established brewery in Fushimi, Kyoto, to let as many customers as possible know the deliciousness of "Japanese sake Tomio" and "freshly pounded rice".
Kitagawa Honke's sake and freshly milled rice are available for sale, and the "weigh-in" service, in which rice is bottled straight from the tank, is especially popular. Sake sold by weight is only available at Okinaya stores for a limited time. The most recommended sake of the season, such as freshly squeezed raw sake and sake aged in cold storage, is brought from the dry brewery to "Okinaya" by the tank. And you can have it bottled straight from the refrigerated tanks set up in the storefront, in old-fashioned weights and measures! It is an experience that is hard to find anywhere else, and the seasonal flavors make you want to come back again and again.
At this store, you can purchase "Tomio," the most famous sake of Kitagawa Honke, as well as authentic rice shochu (Japanese spirit) and plum wine. If there is a sake you are interested in, you can sample it and take your time in making your choice while drinking.
