No trespassing!

The door for employees to enter the house.
Ignore the empty pet bottles :). This is at the back of the house. My guess again, the door is closed permanently.
It's not open for public during normal days. There's a schedule available at the Communication Corner if you want to visit these places, and they will provide you with a guide to take the tour. But the best time to come is of course when the festivals.
This is probably the biggest sake house in town. It is situated between two streets.
Yuri San: Ookii desu ne (It's so big)
Hiro San: Yahari sake ga ippai desuyo! (Must be a lot of sake in there)

I love your views of traditional Japan. Well, actually I love almost all of your photos.

I became curious when I saw the red doors and the sake maker’s name. You can see one of their finished products here.

The name is made up of three kanji. The last one is easy. Tsuru [鶴] means crane: a bird like this. The other two I’m not so sure about: Ka [賀](my dictionary says it is pronounced “ga”), which can mean “joy of the occasion” and mo [茂] which can mean “luxuriant.” Anyway, taken together the three kanji [賀茂鶴] give the sake an extraordinarily auspicious name.

Babzy, yes, I did it two weeks ago on a regular day, I just took picture of the exterior of those houses.

VP and JM, I like the red door one, too, mostly because he suddenly came into my frame :).

Nanak, Indonesia banget :). Aseli deh.

Gary, you found me. And as usual, you always come with a very useful info. I really appreciate what you've done to Kaori and me. Looking forward for you helpful explanation.
