As I didn’t do anything noteworthy yesterday, due to heavy rainfalls, I’ll just skip that day entirely in my descriptions. Instead I’ll tell you about te stuff that I’ve done so far today – this’ll be more interesting 😉
Today I went to the Kirin Beer Park Okayama – one of the Kirin beer breweries in Japan. I had to drive a bit out of the town to get there, but it wasn’t too far. Mantomi station was like 30 minutes away from Omoto, so that’s ok in my book. When I arrived there, it was raining again, but not too heavily. It actually grew heavier on my way to the brewery (and I was going in the wrong direction first xD) – luckily I had taken one of Nozomi’s umbrellas with me.
When I reached the brewery, I was not only the only international visitor (I had expected that), but also the only visitor at all at that time. So I got a private tour through the brewery from Kanako, who was my guide. We talked about te brewery, Kirin beer, Germany, beer in general, drove with the Kirin bus and had a good time. I even got two beer at the end of the tour, but that’s the regular service. Didn’t taste too bad in my opinion. Maybe a little bit too thin, but not that I’d mind much. So, as I have to prepare to go out with Nozomi and two of her friends later, I’ll leave you with a few visual impressions of the trip 😉
Cya next time!
