Homeishuzo Sake Brewery  Horoyoi Jokagura

The Homei Sake Brewery, the brewers of Homei brand’s sake, renovated and maintained the 210-year-old main brewery and the Nishio family’s residence. Mr. Nishio founded the brewery in the Edo period (1603-1868). The brewery follows the traditions and methods of making sake according to the Master Brewer’s tradition. In 2001, the sake brewery tour facility “Horoyoi Jokagura (Tipsy Castle Warehouse)” was opened. In 2003, the main building and brewery of the Homei Sake Brewery Headquarters were registered as a national tangible cultural property (building).

The brewery is located in the vicinity of Sasayama Castle, in the Gofukumachi area, facing the central shopping district, which is a magnet for tourism, and immediately diagonally in front of the Tamba Sasayama City Historical Museum.


The sake brewery and residence were built in the late Edo period, Kansei 9 (1797) and was active until 1975 when a new brewery in the Ajima area of Tamba Sasayama was opened.
