With some research and google translate, we managed to make an appointment for the tour online before we headed to japan. When we arrived at the museum’s reception, we were presented with a deck of laminated cards in English to help us understand the tour...More

I have been to many breweries, across the world, but this one is unbeatable! 1) it's completely free, including the tasting session! 2) perfectly organized, educative, and interactive. If you are scared that it will not work for non-Japanese speakers, you don't need to worry....More

This is a great tour of a commercial brewery. It is a bit difficult to book as it seems you can only do so on the phone. I showed up on a Sunday without a reservation, but they were still able to let me participate....More

Free Beer? Is there any twist? Well the twist is you get an exceptional great tour of Kirin Brewery and find out more about the history of the brand. You get an English booklet, so even though the tour is in Japanese you can easily...More
