Would it be possible to put up a link on here to see that booklet, also a link so that it can be down loaded so we ( tourists) can plan our journeys to these breweries?

japan definitely does not do enough to promote one of its greatest cultural treasures: nihonshu! and i hope a map for eastern japan will be released soon for us tokyoites.

Wetern Japan, yet no Fukui, Gifu, Ishikawa, Toyama, or Shiga. There is like 25 breweries in Fukui. Kukuryu and Ipongi to name two of the most famous.

Western Japan, in other words Kansai only.

I think 80% of all sake sold in Japan is made here in Nada Ward Kobe. There are many good brands for good prices. There's a sake museum walk visiting a few places but it's not one I could recommend.

A booklet is good but the proof is in eating of the pudding or in this case drinking the sake. We have a good bootle once week with good Japanese style foods.

Western Japan? I thought Kansai was central Japan and Kyuushuu fell under Western Japan? Anyway nice initiative. Might check some out.

Now THIS is the sort of idea that will attract tourists, rather than a silly catchphrase! If anyone hasnt been, then get yourself to a sake tasting or a sake festival sometime, and recommend your tourist friends. It's amazing the variety of nihonshu out there (sweet, dry, sparkling, dark etc), and you are supporting local industry. I learnt more about Japanese culture from attending sake events when I first came here than studying the language!

Good idea. There is a brewery near our home where staff speak English and provide written info in other languages. It's always packed with tourists of all nationalities.

I would have thought West Japan was more like Yamaguchi-ken, Hiroshima-ken, Okayama-ken. There’s a reason the Kyoto area is called the Tokai’s Central Japan....
