Why not take a chance to visit 8 different sake breweries in Tango region? Sake made in Tango region is well-known and good quality. For example, if you ask recommended local produced sake in Kyoto city, many times they serve you Sake from Tango region(Sure, Tango region is in Kyoto prefecture, why not count us as local....? :P )
All of those breweries are open to public together only for this day of the year.
I personally recommend Shirasugi brewery, Kinoshita brewery, Taniguchi brewery and Yosa-musume brewery.
Date: 27th&28th May 2017
Each day, 4 sake breweries are open. So if you like to try 8 of them, you need 2 days.
