Help! Advice on Shochu Tour of Kyushu?

mrgreenbeenz | | Mar 19, 2013 04:49 PM

In Korea for a couple weeks and am contemplating popping over to Fukuoka for a few days. I'm a HUGE fan of imo-shochu's and I hear that Kyushu is the spot. With Fukuoka as a starting point I'm wondering if any 'hounds have advice on which sho-chu distilleries are open to the public for tastings. Looks like a lot of stuff is around Kagoshima. Is that too remote from Fukuoka/Nagaskai to do without a car rental?

Any advice/resources would be most appreciated.
