Megmilk Snow Brand Museum / Sapporo Factory雪印メグミルク 酪農と乳の歴史館・札幌工場

Museum / Science Museum

Located a 20-minute walk from JR Naebo Station, this museum is where you can learn about the history of dairy farming and dairy industry development. The 74 cowbells hanging in the entrance lobby are impressive and can actually be rung. The museum exhibits literature that tells the history since its foundation, newspaper articles from the time and manufacturing machines. You can easily learn the steps taken by the Japanese dairy farming in chronological order. If you make a reservation, you can tour the factory and get a taste of dairy products. At Katsugen Shrine, created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the long hit product “Katsugen,” you can pray for success or to pass exams.

札幌のおばさんが働いていた雪印の工場に35年ぶりに行きました。JR苗穂駅の改札を出て左手の交番から線路沿いに数分歩くと地下道があり長いスロープを下って地上に出て約10数分でメグミルク札幌工場の敷地に到着しました。敷地の中に歴史館が併設されています。創業当時に使用されていた機器類や昔の宣伝パンフレット、モデル牧場など乳製品の歴史を語る資料が展示されていました。

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
