You have to take the train over to this museum. It is not close to anything. Is it worth going to? Yes. I've been to the Guiness museum in Great Britain, the Budweiser plant in St. Louis, the Coors plant in Golden, Co. This was...More

Echoing all the five-star reviews given for this tour. We made a booking online about 2 weeks before the tour. This free tour is conducted in Japanese, but videos come with English subtitles and you'll be given a little booklet in English and it was...More

Forget those two sip “tastings” of American Breweries..this is the real deal ya’ll! Three VERY generous pours and some cheese nuts to top it off. Clean crisp and no charge. Make the journey, you wont regret it! Staff is friendly as hell too.

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

Free entrance, free guided tour, free beer, drinks and tidbits. These should be good enough reasons to make one’s visit to the Kirin Brewery a worthwhile one. There are guided brewery tours every hour between 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. daily except on Mondays when...More

You can either calling them directly or just walk in. But if walk in then it will be subject to availability. I think weekday should be OK.
