Plenty of beer has been sunk in Yokohama over the past century and a half since the opening of the port. That tradition is very much alive today, and the city remains one of Japan’s strongholds for brewing, from mass-market suds to limited-edition craft ales.

If it’s the former that inspire you, then sign up for a tour of the Kirin Beer Village in Yokohama’s delightfully named Namamugi (Fresh Barley) district. After inspecting the high-tech production line for 50 minutes, visitors are rewarded with a welcome glass of very fresh lager.
