Excellent experience and well worth the 1h spent there. One would definitely know how sake is made after the visit. Also sake tasting available and tax free purchase for tourists.
Interesting to learn how sake was/is made. They have video information with an English narration option. Most of the display cases are only in Japanese though. You get some free sake tasting samples at the end and there is a robot there as well to help you choose a sake. They have sake ice cream which is interesting. The walk from the Jr line is only 15 min.
