  • Beautiful place with free tour and free bus shuttle to and fro from sukunami station. Just hop on to the little bus that carries a sign with 'nikka'. The tour at the distillery is free includes whisky tasting.. Audio is of not much use, the tour is basically in japanese.
  • Nice place with friendly personnel. Giving just three stars because there are no English tours, audio guide is just a token and has like less than 1 minute per one of 7 exhibits and they don't get you up close to pot stills as in some distilleries.
