Nagoya Station 

[MIZKAN MUSEUM]

A fun and educational hands-on museum introducing the history of vinegar production and the charm of food culture.

The MIZKAN MUSEUM is a hands-on museum from Mizkan, the renowned food manufacturer especially well-known for its vinegar. Going by the nickname MIM, the museum opened in 2015 to pass down the history of Mizkan's vinegar production, its brewing techniques, its passion for manufacturing, the charms of food culture, and more to future generations with consideration for the importance of tradition, innovation and the environment. Benzaisen, a giant ship measuring an enormous 20 meters long, is an overwhelming sight to behold. The ship was used to deliver vinegar from Handa to Edo in the Edo period. Watching the video on the big screen from the deck, you feel as if you are actually on the sailing ship delivering the vinegar. The facility also includes other videos and hands-on experience corners for children to enjoy. (Additional fees and advance reservation are required. Please check the website for details.)
