Reaching the museum via train can be tricky. Its a 10 minute walk from either Keikyu Shin Koyasu station or Namamugi Station. Either station is equidistant walking distance. The village is easy to find. We were surprised that there were more locals than tourists. Several of the locals appeared to be on the free tour for the free beer. Prior... More

Strictly by reservations only. Visitors will be brought on a guided tour of the making of kirin beer and their much-famed ichiban wort. At the end of the tour, one would get to sample various beer that they produce. Point to note is that the venue is located in Yokohama and a change of train is required before a 400m... More

Though we did not fully understand Japanese, but we fully enjoyed the factory tour conducted in Japanese! It took about 30min for the tour, followed by the highlight of the tour - the beer tasting session! Each visitor is entitled to 3 glass of free beer. Since we are not good drinker, we took only average 2 glasses each. We... More

The walk from the train station to Kirin Beer Village is appx 10 to 15 mins. Exit the station and turn left, you will have to cross the train tracks and continue down the main road. Just pass a flyover and you will see the entrance on the right side. The staff at the village was very friendly and courteous.... More

This was a fun, short tour. I showed up a little late, but they let me join in anyway. They provided me an English printout of the guide's speech, so I was able to understand what they were talking about. We even got to try the first and second presses of wort. Kirin only uses the first press of the... More

The Kirin tour was very informative on the process of making Kirin beer. There are different things to taste as you walk through the tour and at the end you get 3 glasses. It is a lot considering the tour is free. Overall we really enjoyed it.
