This state-of-the-art brewery for the famous Japanese beer was opened in 2000 and is located in the hills surrounding the city, just across the river from the town center.
Hita is famous for its pure water, which is used to make delicious beer that you can taste on site here. The facility also offers tours for both its Kuro Black Label and its Yebisu beers, at a cost of just 500 yen per adult. You can book these tours on the brewery website, which has information in English.
There is also a beer garden, a gift shop and a hall selling local produce on site. Be sure to take a cab if you plan on drinking anything other than non-alcoholic drinks though, as they will only serve soft drinks to people who drive themselves to the facility.
