Let’s enjoy a hike to Mt. Kamegamori and a tour of the Asahi Brewery!
ELIS (English Language Intercultural Communication in Saijo), a volunteer group for international exchange, is holding an event combining mountain hiking and a tour of the Asahi Brewery. Let’s refresh ourselves on a summer day!
Mt. Kamegamori is part of the Ishizuchi mountain range. While the summit is 1,897 meters in height, the actual hike is only a fraction of it. So, we can climb to the peak within an hour. Mt. Kamegamori is famous for its natural beauty and superb panoramic view.
Asahi Breweries is one of Japan’s leading beer makers. Making use of Saijo’s excellent quality water, its Shikoku brewery in Saijo produces ‘Asahi Super Dry’, the most popular beer in Japan. After climbing Mt. Kamegamori, we will head to the Asahi Brewery to enjoy a guided tour in English or in Japanese (30-40 minutes) and beer tasting (20 minutes).
