#Sapporo Beer Museum was selected as one of Hokkaido's heritage Sites
What is a Hokkaido heritage site?
It refers to tangible and intangible properties designated by the Hokkaido Heritage Concept Promotion Council as natural, cultural, industrial or other artifacts of Hokkaido legacy that should be passed on to future generations.
# Let's start our tour on the 3rd floor.
On the 3rd floor, there are various documents and tools about the beer making process.
And it's all for free! Unbelievable!!
# let's move on to the 2nd floor
A huge beer keg that was actually used in the past is exhibited on this floor. It's easy to guess the tremendously huge Japanese beer industry by the size of this keg.
A STAR sign reminds people of Sapporo beer. Those used vintage signs are telling of the passage of time, and changes to Sapporo Beer over the years.
# You can take as many pictures as you want!!
# Sapporo Beer Advertisement Posters
Here, all former advertisements of Sapporo beer are exhibited.
Some are difficult to understand(empathy/fellow feelings) if you are not Japanese, however there are a social commentary on advertisement in any country and culture at a given point in the past.
# Finally, Beer time!!!
Oh, I know all of you are waiting for a Beer picture!
Oops, sorry I totally forgot to take pictures of it because I enjoyed drinking Sapporo beer too much!!
Forgive me, and instead I'll place a picture from Kirin beer! ^^
