An expansive outdoor spot located within the children’s play area inside Meiji Shrine’s Outer Gardens, the summer-only Forest Beer Garden is separated from its boozy cousins by its tranquil, tree-lined surrounds and bubbling waterfall. Choose from an à la carte menu (mainly grill-your-own fare) or go all out with an all-you-can-eat-and-drink option (¥4,200 per person for men and ¥3,900 per person for women for two hours). Despite being one of the largest beer gardens in Tokyo, with a capacity of around 1,000, at weekends and during the holidays it gets extremely busy, so those going for the meal plan are advised to book ahead. The entrance to the garden is on the Jingu Gaien (Outer Gardens) side of the park, so if you're arriving from either Shinanomachi Station or Aoyama-Itchome Station be sure not to wander off in the wrong direction.
The Forest Beer Garden's opening hours for 2018 are yet to be determined.
