Ishikawa Brewery is where numerous traditional Japanese-style warehouses stand. It also has restaurants where you can enjoy sake and local beer.
Ishikawa Brewery has a long history with the brewing business dating back to 1863 and the kura (warehouse) to 1880. The original main kura and the new one built in 1897 are registered tangible cultural properties. Tamajiman, which is the representative sake of this brewery, has maintained its traditional flavor since its debut in 1933 and remains widely loved to this day. Local beer is also brewed here, and you can taste fresh local beer in a restaurant inside the site. There are Japanese and soba (buckwheat noodles) restaurants inside a warehouse constructed in 1898 where you can enjoy menus that go well with local sake and beer. The brewery also has a museum where you can learn about the history of brewing in the Edo, Meiji and Showa eras. The brewery is a 5-minute ride by taxi or a 15-minute walk from the south gate of JR Haijima Station.
