Nikka Whisky Sendai Factory Miyagikyo Distillery - Review
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).

Nikka Whisky Sendai Factory Miyagikyo Distillery, Sendai-shi Reviews
Beautiful buildings and scenery with big nature!! Nice people, great learning about whisky and fantastic experience to explore Japanese whisky. You can buy lots of stuffs related to the whisky in their souvenir shop. Definitely worth to visit. Just be careful, the frequency of the train to the near station is not much.
A great excursion if you are in the Sendai area. In weekends and on holidays you can take a free shuttle bus to the factory. Although the tour is in Japanese, there is an electronic English guide available. And of course... there's tasting after the tour. :-)
Free tastings and a well stocked gift shop (although hard to find any of the older vintages, we went for the Nikka Barrell whiskey, very reasonable at 2200 yen). Lovely grounds and gorgeous cherry blossom. Highly recommend it even if you aren’t a whiskey fan.
Beautiful grounds with amazing staff and service. The tour is free and last about one hour. The tour is in Japanese, but they have an audio track you can listen to in a few different languages throughout the tour. There is a free tasting at the end of the tour and of course the souvenir shop with exclusive products. Would definitely reccomend this distillery a visit. Kanpai 🥃
If your in the area this is a must see...the tour of the distillary wasn't too long & you even got to even taste the goods..we were here in Summer time..a bit misty with rain & humid..
