Kushikino is home to gold mines and was once an active gold-mining area.
As a result of 350 years of gold mining, Kushikino has mine shafts extending a total length of 120 km (75 mi).
Over many years, the temperature in the mine shafts has become constant, creating an ideal environment for storing and aging shochu.
A female master distiller utilizes this environment to make and store shochu in earthenware vats, evoking the concept of pre-20th-century shochu production.
You can enter the mine shaft in a mine cart to observe the preparation of shochu and the vats that store it.
※The mine cart runs four times daily (10:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 1:30 PM, 2:30 PM)
※The mine cart ride lasts about 8 minutes (total tour time: approx. 60 minutes)
※Mine shaft tour: \720 (includes mine cart ride)
