Kirin beer factory can bookie to. 3 months in advance easy to get to on public transport approx 25 min from Okayama on local line, they had a shuttle bus waiting to collect us. Even thought the main tour was in Japanese they give you a laminated brochure to follow and do speak moderate English and very friendly. they’re have a gift shop and 3 very generous sized beers for tasting all free. Well worth the visit .

The tasting part provided us with three full glasses of beer fresh from the source. Along with a glass of Kirin Ichiban, we also got a glass of Kirin stout (another disappointing stout from an Asian brewery) and the seasonal Kirin Premium (which had not been on sale to public at the time of our visit). As three Japanese draft beers in Korea would run about $20, this free tour was well worth the trip.

This was a great thing to do on a rainy Sunday. I'm in Japan for 2 months though, so I don't think I would have put other activities on hold to fit this in. The whole tour is in Japanese only, but they provide a book of English that you can follow along with. The tour is free and you get three beers at the end, so it's a good deal if you like beer! We did not need a reservation, however if you make a reservation in advance they'll send a shuttle to pick you up at Mantomi Station. If you don't get the shuttle, it's roughly a ten minute walk. The whole tour and tasting experience was about 80 minutes.

Although we could not understand Japanese and all the introduction on factory during the tour, we enjoyed it very much and deeply impressed by their professionalism and generousity. At the end of the tour all visitors are offered / entitled for 3 drinks and you can selected any kind of fresh beers or soft drinks produced by Kirin. They even provide free shuttle bus taking all visitors to nearby JR station.

Today we visited the Okayama Kirin Beer Park and it was a very interesting and informative tour. The visit was made even better by the extremely helpful staff running the tours (especially H Sakamoto) who made sure that as we were English speaking we were given all the help we needed. They were very patient with our poor to non existent Japanese, helping us with quite good English and a special pack to take round with us to assist with the translation. Special care was taken to ensure designated drivers were not drinking and for those like us on the train, a driver returned us back to the station. I would recommend this visit, even small children found it interesting and had drinks and biscuits setup for them. Of course the tour ended in a beer tasting opportunity and a lesson how to pour the perfect beer. Once again my thanks to the staff that made this such a good visit.
