Turn right out of Biwajima Station and a regular free bus will ferry you to the brewery.
The rather long-winded tour (in Japanese) introduces the visitor to the main ingredients of beer, plus the history of beer and the production facilities at the Nagoya brewery, which supplies the whole of the Chubu area.
The highlight of the tour is how to learn to pour a perfect glass of Kirin in three easy stages.
Participating on the tour allows the visitor two free draft Kirin beers. There is also a shop and a restaurant on the premises.
