HOW TO GET HERE
 


The Tasting Room, measuring 2,260 square feet, presents a light, airy ambiance. The interior of the structure, constructed of Douglas Fir and granite-finished tile, fuses traditional Japanese beauty with a contemporary sense of space. The blue, glass-tiled floor design is inspired by Japan's rice paddies and reflects the name Takara, which means "treasure from the rice paddy." Emphasizing Takara's commitment to conservation of the environment, virtually all wood used in the structure is reclaimed lumber, while the granite floor tiles contain glass recycled from sake, beer, whiskey and other bottles.



Our Tasting Room offers a selection of sake tasting flights through which you can experience the quality and range of Sho Chiku Bai products. You can also learn about the traditional sake production process from our museum gallery and educational video. Factory tours are not available to the public.

Featured course ($10): 6 samples of our newest or featured products.
