Aroma of mint to bring about nostalgic thoughts

Autumn, Culture, Sights, Spring, Summer, Winter

“The Kitami Mint Memorial Museum” was born as a result of Kitami City contributing the laboratory of the Kitami Mint Factory of HOKUREN. Kitami’s mint production, which peaked in 1939, was so remarkable it accounted for approximately 70% of the world market at that time. In the museum, visitors can look at the reference materials of that time and learn the history of mint production and the mint distillation process can be watched in the distillation building adjacent to the museum. Additionally, the diverse types of herbs and their aroma can be enjoyed at an herb garden around the museum.
