Though the times change, here at Kaei-Gura, we have unchanging, genuine sake.
The Suehiro Shuzo sake brewery was founded at the end of Japan's Edo Period. "Kaei-Gura," where the sake is brewed, has been chosen as an important historical building by Aizuwakamatsu City.
Here, visitors can take a guided tour of the sake-brewing process, as well as of old Japanese-style rooms which were built during the Meiji Period.
The brewing process takes place from October to March every year. During this time, visitors can see the process and conditions inside the fermentation tanks.
Visitors may try between six and ten different kinds of sake for free year-round. Suehiro sake and other Aizu products are available for sale.
On the left side after entering the gate stands a cafe called "Kissa Ann"("Ann Cafe"), whose building was remodeled from Kaei-Gura's oldest storehouse. Here, you can enjoy coffee made with water prepared especially for making sake, and cake made using high-quality sake.
