Asahi Brewery, Suita (How to book a beer tour, how to go, and what to expect)

My dad only had a few requests during our trip, and one of them was the visit the Asahi Brewery that was close to Osaka.

I read some blogs where they mentioned that although the tour was free, you have to book a reservation to secure your spot for the day.

I will be honest that booking a reservation online WAS NOT EASY since they were all in Japanese. There was an option to call the brewery so that you could reserve a slot but my friends were busy so I had no choice but to book online.

I took a screenshot for every step that I made so that I can help you guys.
