How about making and tasting genuine sausages in a cozy old folk house more than one hundred years old?

Sakura Burger, a famous burger shop featured by TV programs and magazines, started up a new food factory, Asuka Smoke Works, on the approach to Okadera temple in Asuka village in spring 2018.

The factory is a renovated old folk house comprised of a warehouse, the main building, and a kadoya (a room in the gate of a residence).
The warehouse is the factory for smoking. Our experience, making and eating the sausages, is held in the main building.

You can taste your sausage in a relaxing atmosphere of the cozy countryside.

The factory sells its sausages, hams, bacon, etc. there. It also provides a place for the people who want to live or work in Asuka village so that they can simulate and consult about life in Asuka.
  • Stuffing the kneaded meat evenly.

  • Cutting the sausage at the twisted points.

  • The garden leads from the kadoya to the main building.
