When I read Tweets, Ikeda Wine Castle seems to be popular.

In the Ikeda Wine Castle, there is an entrance on the first floor under the ground, and there are stairs leading to an aging room under the ground on the second floor under the ground. In the maturational room under the ground, lined barrels and bottles are matured, and vintage wine is kept, too. Tourists can purchase wines on the first floor and can really sample those. The Ikeda Wine Castle is the facility wine is felt close. A scenery of Tokachi from the Ikeda Wine Castle is beautiful, too.
