All you need to know about coffee is here. There is also an archive of the UCC commercials from 1970's onwards which makes very interesting viewing. And of course free sample of coffee which makes it worthwhile.

UCC museum offers a good knowledge about coffee plantation and production. The museum is well designed and highly informative. The fun part is the coffee taste and online test with a personalized momento photo as Dr Coffee after completion.

The coffee museum was one of the few things to do in the area, other than visit Ikea. The coffee was excellent but expensive. It's not a bad place to sit and read, if you've got nothing to do.

The museum is located in a remote area where you have to take their portliner to reach the place. It looks dull from the outside but it's a gem on the inside! A 300 yen, which is cheaper than what it stated on the website,...More
