  • The UCC Coffee Museum explains the history of coffee both from a world perspective and from its arrival from Brazil over a hundred years ago. There is also a coffee tasting corner and a gift shop...

  • Great museum with lots of old relics of coffee making related things. Very cool museum. Lots of information on the history and proces. Only 300 yen for the museum. The tasting was a little disappointing. I was hoping for a more interactive tasting like many of the beer manufacturer tours. However, can't expect a lot for 300 yen entrance fee. I would gladly pay extra for a more thorough and interactive coffee tasting with several of their brews.
  • Excellent place for coffee lovers. The museum is in a beautiful building and has a nice cafe inside. If you can answer all 5 questions in the quiz corner, you get a free admission pass for one year! At 300 Yen($2 or so), the admission fee is very cheap. Go up the escalator to the top floor and then come down the winding path for a very good study tour of coffee making including its origins, history and culture across the world. You can also taste some regional coffee for free at specified times. Did you know that if you drink one cup of coffee a day for 365 days, you will drink up 10 coffee trees? Well, now you do. This and much more at this nice little museum.
