Tokyo’s balmy summer evenings are perfect for a bit of outdoor beer-imbibing (except when there’s a bloody typhoon like today.) Where better to enjoy it than on the top of a skyscraper, under the stars? (you can’t see actually any stars, but you can achieve the same effect by signing up for an all-you-can drink deal and getting so pissed you hallucinate.)
Craig over at Tokyo Gig Guide has lovingly assembled the ultimate list of Tokyo beer gardens, complete with times, prices, and addresses. I intend to visit many of them, so if you hear of a giant drunken gaijin accidentally plummeting from a skyscraper between now and September, it may well be me.
