We took the tour. It's in Japanese but they supply an English summary on paper. Better book in advance! Impressive and entertaining guided tour through the building and at the same time through the beer making progress. Beer and non-alcoholic beverages at the end.

When I was there, I did not call in to book as well. We walk in and they slot us in to the next group (roughly 1.5hrs later). There's a restaurant for you to chill and drink more Kirin while waiting. Weekday shouldn't be a... More
