Kids can learn a lot from being on the factory floor

Factory tours in Kansai: chocolate, yogurt and beer.


“And the final tour? That one was for me: the Asahi Beer plant — a mere eight-minute train ride from Osaka Station. I had to persuade my daughter to come along for this one — hey, fermentation is science, right? — and I’m proud to say that she enjoyed herself a lot more than she expected to.”

About Jason Andrew Jenkins

In 1997, Jason left his home near Atlanta for a year abroad. He liked it so much that he never went back. After three years in Taiwan and 13 years in Japan, he and his wife quit their desk jobs in Tokyo, pulled their kids out of local schools and traveled as a family for six years, living in Malaysia, Spain, and Mexico along the way. They returned to Japan — Osaka this time — in the summer of 2019. Jason loves Google Maps, carry-on luggage, and most dishes registering on the Scoville scale.
