"Kagamiyama" is a representative local sake of Kawagoe .
Unfortunately, this sake is not available at the Showa Kura Kikizake Dokoro.
(The only sakes from the Koedo Kagamiyama Brewery available at the Kikizake Dokoro are "Koedo" and "Toki no Kane")

If you want to drink Kagamiyama sake, please go to the" Koedo Kagamiyama Brewery" section of the Meiji Kura (at the souvenir shop).

You can get Kagamiyama there.
If you find a favorite taste, definitely buy a bottle as a souvenir to take home!

No last order
I checked with the shop staff regarding a last order time and they said,
"Because we have not decided on a particular last order time, you can make an order up until the last minute.
However, because it is impossible to prepare exactly enough snacks and perishable items, the snacks might be out of stock near closing hours.

I also went sake tasting at the Ryogoku “Tokyo Shoten (Shop)”

Actually, there are similar facilities in the Ryogoku area of the Sumida Ward in Tokyo.
The place is right next to JR Ryogoku Station (the place where Hanano Mai used to be), "Tokyo shoten" in "-Ryogoku- Edo NOREN".

Here, they offer 30 brands of local sake from 10 breweries in Tokyo.
Prices range from 200 yen to 400 yen per ochoko.
At Kurari’s Kikizake Dokoro, it is 125 yen per cup, so Kawagoe is better in terms of the cost performance.

Not only was there sake but there was also a beer server.
The shop sells various seasonings and processed foods produced in Tokyo.

The design of the table is quite stylish.
It is fitted with sake barrels.

When it comes to Tokyo sake, it’s got to be “Sawanoi”
(personally speaking)
Sawanoi was very popular among the customers here.

A large variety of snacks are also available.
In addition, there was also fish from Tsukiji, as well as "Soba no yu" from the Nihonbashi soba shop "Yabu Hisa" which was founded in the Meiji era.

On the other hand, they were not many vegetables available.
There should be good quality local vegetables and brand vegetables in the 23 wards of Tokyo too ....

There was also equipment for making hot sake (atsukan)
Transfer the sake from the ochoko to the "chirori" and attach the handle to the corner of the device to warm it up.

Insert a dedicated thermometer to check the status of the sake heating.
According to a guide table that was placed nearby, the sake is quite warm around 40 degrees, hot at 50 degrees and at 55 degrees and over, it is said to be “tobikirikan" which translates to “piping hot sake" .

... while chatting with a friend, it went up to nearly 60 degrees in no time.
It warms up faster than you expect, so be very careful!

 

Koedo Kurari Kikizake Dokoro- a facility in Saitama where you can compare and drink 40 kinds of sake.

Of course, drinking too much is not permitted, but I think that this is a very good facility where you can causally learn about the sake culture of Saitama.
Please visit and feel free to drop in while sightseeing in Kawagoe!
