Travel Guide - Horino Memorial Museum


A Sake brewer "Kinshi Masamune" was established in 1781 by Matsuya Kyubei, the first head of the Horino family. Since that time, Kinshi Masamune has established a high reputation for itself as an innovator in the Sake industry.
Even though the brewing company is located in Fushimi today, they were originally based in downtown Kyoto until they transferred their brewing facilities to the current location in 1880. The former residence of Horino family located in the company's original place is now opened to the public as Horino Memorial Museum, a Sake museum including a library, Sale cellar & beer hall, warehouse, Edo-period (1603 - 1868) living quarters, a well with pure water, and much more.
