Orion Beer is the most famous beer in Okinawa and easily available at restaurants across the prefecture. The beer is brewed in a brewery in Nago City in the north of the Okinawa Main Island. One part of the brewery, called Orion Happy Park, is open to the public and the meeting point for free tours of the brewery. It also features a large shop, a restaurant and a small history gallery.

Free tours of the brewery take about one hour and are conducted in Japanese. Advance reservations are required. The tours cover the history of Orion Beer, the ingredients and process of beer making, views into various factory halls, including onto the bottling lines, and a 20 minute tasting session at the end.
