Story & Recommendation
The biggest beer garden with the freshest beer in Kyoto is Asahi Beer Garden!
Asahi Beer Garden is held every year on the rooftop of the Takashimaya department store. At this biggest beer garden in Kyoto, you can have fresh beer straight from the factory and enjoy a buffet of foods that go well with beer. They, of course, have classics like fried foods, but also a salad bar, sweets, and other things, and while they without saying have beer, they also have wine, cocktails, plum liquor, and others, so there really is a lot to choose from. You have no time limit for the buffet or the drinks, and they have events for a limited time when they have even more beer types and snacks available. I am sure that those who like beer, but also those who don’t, will both enjoy this event.
The freshest beer in town
What is most special about this beer garden is the freshness of the beer. The beer here is straight from the factory in Suita, Osaka, and it is so good you need to be careful of drinking too much.
Besides the kara-age fried chicken and yakitori and the other classics, these spareribs are also a popular item. These slowly grilled spareribs go incredibly well with beer. There is a limit of one sparerib per one person.
Enjoy the night illumination
When the sun sets, these blue lights illuminate the rooftop. This is a great chance to enjoy an illumination event with beer.
