About Nikka Whisky Sendai Factory Miyagikyo Distillery, Sendai-shi
It is unfortunate that for the most part, this tour will have to be restricted to Japanese speaking visitors only. It's not that foreign language speakers aren't allowed… it's that they don't have an English language tour yet. So, unless you're a whiskey aficionado who can't stand the thought of leaving behind a whole distillery unvisited (and you don't speak Japanese), you'll want to avoid visiting. For that happy crowd that does speak the language, the fascinating tour will take you not just through the distilling process, but also tell you the story of the man who founded the distillery in the first place. The site, enclosed by mountains on all sides, and at the confluence of two rivers, is worth visiting just for the scenery. The buildings themselves are utterly charming. And of course, at the end of the tour, you can sample one glass each of three different brands of wine (unless you're the designated driver, in which case they'll give you a soft drink).
