Yakult Factory Tour in Wake
Located at a 40 minute drive from Okayama city, Wake bottling plant of Yakult was there.
After confirming our reservation (advance reservation is required) at the main gate, a guidance of this tour was given on the first floor where various containers of Yakult sold around the world were displayed.
There were also areas for photography and some games related to their products to play on the second floor.
At 11:00AM, the tour started. At the beginning, informative animated video about Yakult was shown while we tasted bottles of it. It was a half an hour tour around the factory with a friendly tour guide explaining their high-tech production process through the glass-walled viewing gallery.
Please take a note that taking photos is not allowed during the tour. It was very nice to have learned how this familiar drink is produced.
The tour ended with souvenir including a carton of their drinking product.
