It offers two industrial tours, ""Discover the Secret of Kirin Ichiban Shibori's Delicious Flavor,"" which is free of charge, and ""Kirin Ichiban Shibori EP Tour,"" which charges a fee and is available at irregular intervals.

Okayama Main Areas

around-area-map

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
