Fodor's Review

Not far from the Fushimi-Inari Shrine lies a district of high-wall sake breweries and warehouses, some dating to the early Edo era—Gekkeikan, founded in 1637, is one of the oldest and best known. Its museum displays many artifacts connected to the brewing process. The admission fee includes a tasting and small bottle of sake or plum wine. Fushimi is noted for its pure springs. If your water bottle is empty, fill it up at the on-site well.
