Autumn Beer Gardens in Tokyo

September 13, 2013

beer_garden_beerBeer Gardens ARE Summer in Japan!  Like Obon, fireworks, and mosquitos, beer gardens, from the German “Biergarten,”  are an institution in Japan.  Always hot and humid, even at night, summer in  Japan seems custom made for enjoying cold beer, and the Japanese are inventive in their search for more scenic and interesting locations at which to drink it. A Beer Garden is an outdoor area in which beer and food are served; often on the roofs of department stores and hotels throughout Japan.

There are way too many varieties of Beer Garden to list.  Some offer premium food and drinks in high end locations, some offer a more bulk experience featuring fried food at its worst and “all-you-can-drink” budget-friendly options.  The best locations for me offer yakiniku on a rooftop, but perhaps you might prefer Korean food?  Its there somewhere!

If you have not made it to one this year, or just want to make it again, we have a list of beer gardens in Tokyo that are open into September.  The websites are mostly in Japanese.
