4th Guests have come



We have just welcomed fourth guests: three Japanese, one Korean, one Chinese/Germany and one Australian - so international. The request received was "we want to see beautiful coloured leaves!" Late October to early November is the best season for coloured leaves in Yamagata, so the trip was organised so that guests can fully enjoy them here.


The itinerary was as follows.


Day 1

Mitobe Sake Brewery

Tendo Onsen


Day 2

Dewazakura Sake Brewery

Local Lunch (soba noodle)

Koyo Walk by the river

Yamadera Walk

Sake Pairing Dinner

Kaminoyama Onsen


Day 3

Sake Glass Making (Pottery)

Professional Sake Tasting Session

Imoni Party

Zao Onsen


The coloured leaves were so gorgeous, and we were able to enjoy them at everywhere we went. The guests had a number of occasions (two in Day 1, three in Day 2 and two in Day 3) where they were able to taste sake, which is the key selling point of this sake tour.


Yamagata is going to have snow before the end of the year, and sake brewing season is coming very soon. We have one of the best skii resorts in Japan - Zao Onsen Snow Park - in Yamagata. Consider coming to Yamagata for your next trip.
