Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



When you look at Takashima Brewery’s labels, you will have to make a point at looking carefully at tha “band” over the main label, as this is the only information you will get (and make sure it goes into your scrap book as well!)

Although, their brews are few, they are definitely out of the oridinary. A favourite? Definitel!
