Excellent news from Nikka: both Yoichi and Miyagikyo will re-open for tours from Friday 17th July. At Japan Whisky Tours, we will be holding tours to Sendai and Sapporo — including these classic distilleries — in August (dates to be confirmed).
Contact us through our Facebook page or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you plan to make your way there on your own, make sure you reserve in advance on the websites for Yoichi and Miyagikyo. Note that, around the O-Bon holiday (8th to 16th August), there will be regular shuttle buses from Sakunami station to Miyagikyo distillery.
