On the edge of Kyoto's Fushimi area is the Matsumoto sake brewery.
It was founded in 1791, and continues to produce sake.
Located next to a canal, which is industrial and not an ideal backdrop to the beautiful buildings, the brewery retains a look from an earlier time.
The brewery maintains an attractive but irritating web site:

From central Kyoto, ride the Keihan Line to Fishimi Momoyama Station. Exit and walk through the shopping arcade directly next to the station. Continue through the arcade until you reach its end. Keep going in the same direction for about 10 - 15 minutes. On your right before a canal.
