To Know Sapporo, Beer Museum Is Best Place

In 1876, Japanese government set up a brewery in Sapporo, Hokkaido. From then on Sapporo is known as a beer brand.

It was a deep cold winter, with foot in the thick snow I came to the east of Sapporo. From very far I saw the significant big pentagonal star.

I have emotions with bricks and tiles because I am from a industrial province and I have strong feeling with factories.

In this museum you can learn how a small wheat becomes beer finally. You will also learn the whole history of Japanese beer industry. In some meaning it is Japanese westernize history.
