神戸の酒蔵見学! Visiting Sake Brewery in Kobe!

今日は神戸市灘区にある「浜福鶴」さんへお邪魔しました。

We visited “Hamahukutsuru” sake brewery in Kobe. dscn9965

神戸は昔から酒造りが盛んで、酒造りの歴史や資料を展示した資料館がたくさんあります。無料で見学、酒の試飲ができる酒蔵が多く、多くの観光客が酒造りを学びに訪れます。説明も日本語と英語で書かれているので、観光にもってこいですね。

Kobe has been famous for its sake brewing from  the Edo period(about 300 years ago) and has a lot of sake museums. Every year, many tourists from overseas visit this kind of sake brewery to have a sake experience for free.

 

実際の酒造りの機械や、道具、資料が展示してあります。みなさん、写真を撮ったり興味津々です。

They display special machines for sake brewing, tools that were used long ago and some information about sake brewing history. Everyone was curious about it.

見学が終わったあとは、お待ちかねの試飲タイム!!どれを飲もうか考えるのも楽しそうですね。「乾杯!!!」

After learning how to brew sake, tasting time starts!! They looked at their sake in the ridge of the glass with a big smile. ” Cheers”

4人の一番のお気に入りの酒は、ゆずの風味が効いた酒でした。

Their best sake  was a citrus-flavored liqueur.

日本にはたくさんの種類のお酒があり、地域によって特色があります。家族や友達へのお土産としても喜ばれそうですね。

There are many kinds of sake throughout Japan and their tastes are totally different from region to region. You can travel around Japan and find your best sake, which would make a good souvenir  for your parents and friends.
