Nestled in the heart of Jojima, a locale synonymous with fine sake due to its superior water and rice and the strategic waterways of the Chikugo River, is the annual autumn event that offers a delightful circuit of five renowned sake breweries: Ikekame, Chikushi no Homare, Hana no Tsuyu, Hiyoku Tsuru, and Mizuho Nishiki. Guests are invited to embark on this cultural journey aboard a complimentary shuttle bus that departs every 30 minutes. Upon arrival, enthusiasts are encouraged to acquire a special tasting cup, complete with a ticket that unlocks the opportunity to indulge in up to ten tastings of exquisite sake varieties across the quintet of breweries. Each stop provides not just a tasting experience but also the sale of savory snacks and sake, ensuring a convivial festival-like experience imbued with the spirit of Japanese hospitality.
