Kitakata is well-known for the number of storehouses it holds. It is said that there are more than 2000 storehouses in the town. Various brewing cultures such as sake, miso and soy sauce were developed in Kitakata. That’s why it has scores of brewery storehouses. There are also warehouses to stock commodities for the harsh snowy winter, many of which are still in use today. A walk in the retro town is fun.
