Keyaki Hiroba Autumn Beer Festival

Tokyo's endless parade of Oktoberfests aren't the only option for beer lovers looking to drink in the great outdoors in autumn. 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, DevilCraft, Minoh, Shiga Kogen, Ise Kadoya and Sankt Gallen are just a few of the 88 names lined up for the Keyaki Beer Festival, held right outside Saitama Super Arena, though there'll 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.

This is easily the best beer festival in Japan, if not Asia.  Heck, it's better than any beer festival I've been to in Canada or the US, too.  Amazing beer choices, great food, nice atmosphere and friendly visitors.  I highly recommend it. ;)
