Senryu Brewery Warehouse Opening (Kurabiraki) on 4/8, 9 | 潜龍酒造(本陣)蔵開き春の陣


After you soak up the beauty of cherry blossoms in Japan, it’s time to enjoy sake. On April 8 and 9, a sake festival, kurabiraki will be held at Senryu Brewery. Senryu Brewery is a long-established brewery that has a history of more than 330 years! It preserves its traditional handmade methods without using machines.

Kurabiraki is a warehouse opening event. Senryu Brewery holds kurabiraki twice a year, in spring and autumn. The new sake of the year is released at the spring event. This time, the free sake service will be back for the first time in three years. Also, on the festival only, you can buy freshly-pressed sake (namagenshu 生原酒) of its daiginjyo (大吟醸), premium sake.

Even if you are not a sake lover, it’s worth visiting. Nagasaki Prefectural Historic Site “Emukae Honjin Yashiki” on the premises of the brewery will be open to the public during the event. It was an accommodation for the Lords of Hirado in the Edo period.

Other features are
・Sake tasting
・Free ice cream (limited quantity)
・Food market including famous fruit sandwiches from Shimabara (Supermarket Inoue)
・Stage performances, and more!

If you would like to drink sake, please use public transportation. It is 10 minutes on foot from Emukae-Kashimae station on the MR train. Shuttle bus service will be available from the station.
