Whisky, Bamboo groves and Red gates

A travel blog entry by daveegray on Apr 27, 2014

Our final day in Kyoto saw us begin our day visiting the world famous Suntory Whisky museum south of the city in Yamazaki. The friendliness of the staff and the area the museum was in was truly stunning. The tour began and we were shown around all of the working parts of the factory where they make their whisky.

Our last visit of the day was to a Sake museum, where we were shown how sake used to be made, and more interestingly what it tastes like. Our guide then bought us all a little bottle of sake to take home with us. A nice gesture.

Once back at the hotel a group of us went swimming, the hotel has a 20 metre pool, but just 1m10 deep - a couple of Japanese men just walked up and down. I think I read somewhere that many Japanese can't swim.
