Shizuoka Sake Tasting 28-3: Watanabe Brewery


The Japan Blog List

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!


Watanabe Brewery must be the smallest one in Shizuka Prefecture tucked away from anywhere in Numazu City. I can tell you it is not easy to find their brews even near Numazu City. But I made good provision when I visited them and can appreciate them in all tranquility back home!
