beautiful French-style chateau in Ibaraki, with wonderful grounds. Interesting wine cellars and museums, as well as a microbrewery and winery. Also recommended (assuming they still do it) is the barbecue restaurant area. Chateau still closed off in Jan 2016, under repair

1500 yen all you can drink for two hours. 10 great quality beers on tap. Summer beer garden. Only an hours train ride from Ueno station on the Joban line. Great food and excellent service. Make a reservation before you go, it's a popular place.
