As the weather warms up, bars, hotels and even department stores in Tokyo are opening their roofs and terraces to the public – and with this, the beer garden season officially begins. As we say every year, it just wouldn't be summer without an evening spent idly sipping frosty pints or cool cocktails out in the open air. Plus, with the city’s alcohol restrictions now eased, Tokyoites can again enjoy drinking at their favourite restaurants and bars (but only until 7pm).
So how do you, the discerning drinker, find the most attractive deals among the myriad of beer events and festivals out there? Fret not, we’ve done the leg work for you – go ahead and choose from our list below. Cheers!
