Good place to walk around and know about how Sapporo beer came about. At the end of the tour, you can get a taste of the beer at the little pub. The little village around is nice to walk around too

If you are in a hotel have the front desk call for you, unless you speak Japanese it will be difficult otherwise. Enjoy!
