I myself do not go to Mamiana very often, but fortunately there were vacant seats because several people had canceled their participation. So, I could join the tour.
When people who gulp sake like a whale got on the same bus, then what will happen?
No problem! A sake embargo was imposed until the bus got on the express way on the return path.
The itinerary of the tour includes:
- Lunch and shopping at a fish market (Shizuoka has several famous fishery harbors with fish markets)
- Study tour at Suruga Shuzojo Brewery
- Seeing the exhibit of a MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM
- Shopping at Sake Shop Okitsu
Lunch and shopping at a fish market
Rice Bowl of Negitoro with an Onsen Egg had a creamy taste.
Study tour at Suruga Shuzojo Brewery
The brewery has several brands of Tenko, Haginokura, Sogatsuru, Chuumasa, etc.
The brewery was originally making Chuumasa brand sake.
Later, it inherited the brands of Tenko, Haginokura, and Sogatsuru from another brewery, and started as a new company at the current place in Shizuoka..
I took some video of the brewery.
Seeing the exhibit of a MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM
A big statue of GUNDAM was exhibited near JR Higashi-Shizuoka Station.
Shopping at Sake Shop Okitsu
This liquor shop owns two namazake tanks in the store.
The generous-hearted owners let all of us (39 people) drink their sake.
Each of us could drink quite a lot.
Please watch the video below to see how the shop was.
The sake was so nice that I felt an impulse to drink directly from the tap of the tank.
