Hakata Hyakunengura

Dating from the mid-19th century and located a mere five minutes’ drive from Hakata Station, Hakata Hyakunengura has been at the heart of life in Fukuoka for 140 years. The sake brewery’s distinguishing features, including massive wood beams, white plaster walls and a towering brick chimney have earned it the status of Tangible Cultural Property in Japan. It is also the only local sake brewery in the city.

Concept
Five of the rooms of the old brewery have been converted into event spaces that provide beautiful, practical facilities for corporate meetings or dinners parties while accentuating the original features of the building.

Events can be proceeded or followed by a sake tasting experience, with expertise on drinks provided by staff. Drinks include freshly brewed sake that can be drunk only at the brewery, and sparkling varieties that utilise local produce such as the Fukuoka’s famous Amaou strawberries.

The on-site shop features a dizzying array of sake options for purchase as well as cups, glasses, other sake paraphernalia, and the brewery’s own sake-infused confections.

The Hall, which seats 110 guests, boasts high ceilings with exposed wooden eaves, original wooden beams and white-washed walls with wood paneling.

The Ichibangura Room, which seats 70 guests, is similar in architecture and furnishings, with dark wood throughout. Both are equipped with projection equipment.

The theme continues in the Sankura Room, which seats 46 guests. Its white-washed walls are adorned with sake memorabilia from the early days of the brewery.

Seating 28 and 24 guests respectively, the Okunoma and Sakabayashinoma Rooms are smaller and more modern, while retaining the historic feeling of the building.

A table and two seats handmade by using traditional wooden sake cups are available for use by guests of honour.

The brewery offers a wide range of lunch and dinner set meals that can fit groups of varying budgets. Attendees can also enjoy the brewery’s own sake from its original vessels.

A pick-up service is available for groups of 50 guests or more.
