Yamazaki Suntory Whiskey Distillery

Tour a whiskey library, distillery and aging cellar

By Cathy Cawood   Jun 7, 2014 - 1 min read

I've done this tour twice with groups of friends, and it is a wonderful way to spend half a day. Even people who don't like whiskey will surely be interested in the history and the wonderful atmosphere of the place. The tour is in Japanese, but headphone sets with English are available on request. At the end of the tour you even get to sample some of the whiskey! I discovered that I like whiskey very much, and I was surprised at how much variation in taste there is between different kinds. There is a store where you can buy some whiskey to take home.

You should make a reservation before you go.

I fell in love with Japan long before I came here in 2003 to teach English, and it has proved to be a lasting romance.  I love the history, the traditional architecture, the food, the strange and sometimes ridiculous contrasts, and the beautiful countryside. I lived in Shiga prefecture for one year, and in Kyoto for nine years, and now I live in Machida in Tokyo. I've traveled a little in Japan, but not nearly as much as I'd like to. I like traveling by train, but my favorite way to travel is bicycle.
