Open House of
Kaminoi Brewery and Yamamori Brewery
4th Sunday of February
Participation fee: Free
There are 12 "sake" breweries in Nagoya (Nov. 2008) and three of them are in Odaka, Midori-ku.
Odaka area is famous with the battle of Okahazama (Imagawa Yoshimoto vs Oda Nobunaga) in 1560,
but also popular with sake brewage. Water here was good for producing sake and
people started brewing here in the years of Genroku (1688-1704).
Buildings of both breweries are old and create a special atmosphere.
