    From the home page you can book. Got a phone call and left the book out in advance, but be late than the scheduled time. Hope you very friendly service. Separated by real at the reception desk 30 minutes each, as were around tour group than much of the advance booking not required as. Guide to parking lot guards are safe in reception and usher also used the facilities I ~ that is impressive. Went together in about 15 people if I finished the reception ago the start time. Had to wait tired and display description of the materials and manufacturing processes, product information, etc. in the reception building. First images and descriptions for about 10 minutes, go walk with piles of red bricks and green contrast to be healed in a nice building around reservoirs, etc.. And finally tasting, non-alcoholic juice, tea and a drink driver driver non-free in 3 tablespoons, an additional charge will also be. Shop is located near the exit, we also sell alcoholic beverages. Wasn't planning to buy a whiskey factory limited and weak only because I bought recently. Is not so far off the Sendai city, so put it in the process, was the answer. Time was about an hour and a half.
