Hi, readers! It’s Midori, from MMN’s editorial team.
When thinking about summer, one of the first things that springs to mind are beer gardens! Drinking a cold beer outdoors on a hot summer’s day is a special kind of delicious. More and more beer garden events appear in Japan every year, the vibe and atmosphere is different for each depending on where you are.
Today, I’ve compiled for you 5 must-visit beer gardens in Tokyo for summer 2019.
Heineken Kirin Beer Garden: Enjoy a lamb BBQ at Kichijoji Daiichi Hotel
This beer garden is being hosted in a BBQ style. Enjoy a two-hour all-you-can-drink course with either a Jingisukan BBQ or oil ponzu fondue as well as a selection of à la carte that go perfectly with the beer on offer. Look out for the lamb BBQ as well, a hugely popular choice every year at the hotel.

Honoo Bulgogi vs. Tamashii Hot Pot: Ikebukuro Tobu Beer Garden
The Tobu Department Store in Ikebukuro is set to serve up its popular bulgogi nabe on the building rooftop. This year also sees the introducing of a new hot pot. Women can also enjoy a discount price on the bulgogi nabe even cheaper than previous years. There is also an happy hour service where all customers can enjoy reduced prices.

Beer Garden With an Unbroken View Of the Sea at InterContinental Yokohama Grand
InterContinental Yokohama Grand is bringing its hugely popular beer garden Hama Beer back to Yokohama Minato Mirai again this year. Look forward to tucking into some authentic delights at the hotel terrace with a panoramic view of the Yokohama sea. They also serve a variety of non-alcoholic cocktails too. I recommend this one if you’re looking for a romantic, slightly more adult beer garden experience.

Machida MODI at Renewed “Sky Beer Garden” With Projection Show
The Sky Beer Garden atop Machida MODI has reopened after renovations. A projection show is taking place on the building wall as part of the beer garden. On the official homepage, people can also sign up to have a message projected onto the wall. 7 people will be randomly selected per day. This would be perfect as a surprise to that special someone!

SKY PARADISE BEER GARDEN: Delicious steak and more at Isetan Shinjuku
At Isetan Shinjuku’s stylish SKY PARADISE BEER GARDEN visitors can enjoy steak from Steak NO.1 STEAK THE FIRST. The drinks menu also includes beverages other than beer, so if you’re not a beer person then I definitely recommend this one. It is being held on the rooftop too so you can enjoy dining in the warm late afternoon and evening outdoors in Tokyo.
