Ponshukan Sake Museum of Echigo

The Ponshukan Sake Museum is inside Echigo-Yuzawa Station. Here, you can enjoy famous Niigata products such as sake and rice to your heart’s content at sake tasting sessions and the souvenir stands.

At the sake-tasting corner, "Koshinomuro", you can sample close to 100 varieties of sake from all of Echigo’s breweries. The sake-tasting machine is lined with a variety of sakes - choose the brand you want to try, insert money to turn it on, and push the button to pour delicious local sake. A wide range of salts are also available to enjoy your sake along with.

The day spa "Sakeburo Yunosawa" features sake-bath hot springs, which will make your skin silky smooth. You can only find such diverse ways to enjoy sake in Niigata - it’s not all about drinking! People with a low alcohol tolerance and children can also bathe without issue.
