Passed by this historical place few times and never have any intention to go in. Finally, decided to walk in this evening. I am not a Sake lover but I was impressed by this brewer factory, will visit again.

I was excited about going inside the awesome-looking brewery, but it wasn't open when I stopped by just before noon on a Wednesday. The building looks quite impressive, and I hope to be able to go inside the next time I'm in Otaru.
