    Iwate Pref. Moriokashi Kitayama 1-3-31
    "A brewery located a 10-minute walk from JR Kamimorioka Station. The brewery makes traditional, classic style beers using brewing equipment purchased from the south of Germany. The brewery took the top prize at the first ""Japanese Craft Beers We Want to Share with the World"" contest and also published a book on the journey from the brewery's foundation to winning this event. There's a room where visitors can see inside the brewery, and a brewery shop where you can taste fresh made local beer. The staple Classic has been brewed since the brewery was established and is characterized by its excellent balance between body and bitter flavor."

    If you get a chance to visit the brewery, it is worth the stop just to enjoy a refreshing beer.. Very cordial and excellent brewers..

    旧・奥州街道をランニングで旅した際に通りかかりました。白塗りの壁の立派な酒蔵です。酒蔵見学も出来るようですが、時間が合わなかったのか開いていませんでした。蔵の前には「紺屋町・鍛冶町・紙町」の町名由来を示す案内板が立っています。

Iwate Areas

around-area-map

A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
