Gekkeikan Sake Museum

This morning it was rainy, so we started out by heading to Fushimi to see the Gekkeikan Sake Museum.

This museum is awesome. For 300 yen, you get admission to the museum, a free small bottle of sake to take home, and you get to have 3 free samples.

Well, that’s all for the museum. The next post will be about Fushimi Inari Taisha!

    I’ve heard that sake is pretty potent…don’t forget to use the plane when you fly home!
