The other reviews describe it well. If you're staying in Shibu-onsen, you probably have an hour to spare, and this is a great way to relax. Free sake samples (self-serve), and if you like it, the bottles are reasonably priced. My wife and I had...More

There was no sign of anyone, staff or visitor when we dropped in. The art gallery upstairs has little in it really. Once we located staff she pointed us to around 15 bottles of sake and left us to help ourselves. The first 8 we...More

So after visiting the snow monkey Park and having lunch at a soba place at shibu onsen, we set out to look for this museum. After walking about for 10 min we finally located it. There are about 15 different types of sake to taste...More

The day I visited they seemed to have only one staff on duty, and she was quite busy. She simply pointed us the the many open bottles of sake on the bar and said, "help yourself". It was an excellent strategy, as 1/2 an hour...More
