The location of Yago distillery is 1300 Sugama, Ishioka-shi, Ibaraki 315-0151.
  This is different from the location of the Kiuchi Sake Brewery, the main brewery and the beer brewery in Naka City, Ibaraki Prefecture. Please be careful when visiting the Yago Distillery.
During tours and tastings, due to unexpected events such as earthquakes, or for security reasons, the museum staff may ask you to move around the museum or give you guidance. We appreciate your cooperation in such cases.
