Kyushu Travel Guide

Meiji-gura

 

Enjoy tasting Shochu at the most famous Shochu brewery in Kagoshima

 

Meiji-gura is Satsuma Shuzo’s Shochu factory and museum.

Satsuma Shuzo is producing traditional handmade Shochu “Tezukuri Meijigura”and other

traditional making style Shochu like “Banshokou”, “Satsuma Shiranami Kametsubo Jikomi”,

and “Meiji no Shochu” etc.

 

The name Meijigura is a Japanese word made up of the words Meiji, from the Meiji Era,

and the word Gura, for distillery. We use this name Meiji because we use the traditional methods

from the Meiji Era for making our handmade Shochu brands.
