Keyaki Beer Festival

Tokyo's endless parade of Oktoberfests aren't the only option for beer lovers looking to drink in the great outdoors in spring. Take a daytrip to Saitama to sample craft beers from a host of Japanese microbreweries at this extra-long weekend fest – some for as little as ¥300 a glass. Coedo, Aqula, Minoh, Shiga Kogen, Ise Kadoya and Sankt Gallen are just a few of the names lined up for the Keyaki Beer Festival, held right outside Saitama Super Arena, though there'll also be a few places selling Sapporo and Yebisu, if that's more your thing. There'll also be a selection of imported brews on offer – think BrewDog and West Coast Americans – plus food offerings ranging from Hokkaido seafood and local veg to sausages, sausages and more sausages.
