  • Bought some interesting drinks, museum was kinda interesting, probably moreso if you're into brewing. Sat on the grass outside and a security guard very rudely gestured for us to get up without any words. I'd just spent money there and felt really disrespected.
  • Found this posting about their Best 3 star winner sake. It is smooth like I did not feel the alcohol. Good sake
