 Summary

Shisui Magariya is home to the Sakagura Café and Iinumahonke sake shop. It’s located on the property of Iinumahonke, a famous family-owned sake brewery with over 300 years of history. Their locally brewed sake is on sale at the shop, including Kinoene Junmai-ginjoshu, a 2019 Sake Awards Gold Prize winner. Iinumahonke’s foundation in sake culture is said to date back centuries ago when the brewery was established by village leaders who started making sake with the annual rice tax they collected from local farmers.

 Helpful Tips

Try the delicious curry lunch plate at the Sakagura Café. The curry is cooked with sake kasu, a paste-like cooking ingredient made of the lees left over from sake production.
