Beer garden on top of Kyoto Tower was a lot of fun!

Miyuki Miyuki[ Sharing Kyoto Staff ]
Summer season in Kyoto is hot and humid every day and it is not unusual that the temperature is rising over 35℃ during the day time. So, a beer garden is perfect for such a hot day! Usually, a beer garden is located on the roof tops of department stores or hotels and we can enjoy drinking in open space with cool breeze. Beer garden is held during the summer season only. Please enjoy Japanese summer tradition. Since you can enjoy not only the beer garden but also the scenery of Kyoto city, we highly recommend Kyoto Tower Roof Top Beer Garden for tourists.

After the sunset, we could enjoy the illuminated Kyoto Tower as well. It was also really beautiful!
A comment from the staff
The day we visited the beer garden was pretty sunny, so there was a big line even before the open. Families, friends and business men also enjoy their own time while drinking beer. One of the good point of Kyoto Tower Beer Garden is the wide variety of foods. Not only usual menus such as fried potatoes, chicken, or noodles but also takoyaki or dim sum are offered. In addition to that, we could see Kyoto Tower at a close range, it may be illuminated after the sunset.
