Kirin Distillery Fuji Gotemba, Fuji Reviews - Write a Review
This is a good distillery to visit. It is not too busy and the guided tours are free. They also offer guests to taste 2 types of whiskies for free if you go through the tour. Although the tours are Japanese only, they let you see the whole production process including bottling and packaging. You can also buy some rare whiskies here for a decent price.
Great distillery with free tour and at the end of the tour you can taste 2 types of whiskey, one of which is a limited edition and can only be bought at the distillery. The tours are conducted in Japanese but on a non busy day, there are a few English speaking staff and they can also conduct tours in English.
Can the tour be conducted in English or Chinese? I tried to reserve the tour online but can only found Japanese site and no choice of language for the tour.
This was a great spot to visit. The free 20-minute tour takes visitors throughout the distillery and enables viewing of multiple stages in the process. At the end, visitors are welcome to enjoy complimentary taste testing of multiple whiskeys and beers in the Kirin product line.
Great place to visit if you're in the area and have a hour or two free. We tried to get a bus from Gotemba Station but we're advised by the local guides to take a taxi as the nearest stop was quite a way from the factory, the taxi was cheap enough at ¥2000 and we were there within 10 minutes from departing the station. I think there are tours about every 30 minutes or so from 9 am to about 4:30 pm and are free, but if you have a big group its best to book in advance. The tour is spoken in Japanese but they provide you with an English language lamante, also a lot of the literature around the factory is in English to so you get the jist of what the guide is saying. The tour lasts about an hour in total, with a 15 minute (English subtitled) film at the start about the history and process of the whisky made here, then you move on to the guided tour which is about 20-25 minutes. After the tour you are treated to a 20 minute sampling session where you can have up to two high balls free of charge. There is also a gift shop where you can purchase some of the whisky at a discounted price. Well worth paying a visit, pleasent staff, great tour and totally free!
