The island of Hokkaido is very famous for its beer production, and what could be a better idea than visiting the Sapporo Beer Museum during your trip to Japan Rugby World Cup. It is located just a twenty-minute walk from the JR Sapporo Metro station, in a building that was a former brewery for the Sapporo Beer company, one of the most popular beers in Japan. Inside you can learn about the detailed history of beer production and the processes behind it, as well as having the option of a tasting session at the end, which I’m sure for many is the main reason to come! Even if you do not drink, this still remains one of the most interesting things to do in Sapporo because it gives you a good insight into an important part of Hokkaido’s history. What’s more is that it’s completely free! Although you will have to pay to taste the beer.
