The plaque explains the fact that American "visitors" established the first beer company in Japan that eventually evolved in Kirin beer co. Wouldn't go out out my way to visit this location, nice factoid though.

I go there to place with my friends very often after school! Kirin Koen (Kirin Park) is a great place to hang out. If you live in Yokohama this is a nice place to hang out. So is Yamashita Park.

Nice interesting free tour around the brewery. It's in Japanese but a English explanation is provided. You can try three beers at the end in a tasting session. Children can try soft drinks.
