June may be summer in Tokyo but it’s also the rainy season. So what better excuse to escape the rain than by diving into Tokyo’s Great Japan Beer Festival? Even though many of us might automatically think of sake as the drink of choice in Japan, beer is in fact the most popular. The Great Japan Beer Festival takes place in early June at the Ebisu Garden Hall in Tokyo. It’s one of the two biggest beer festivals in Japan and is wildly popular with beer aficionados (so consider buying your entrance ticket in advance – you’ll save time and money) who flock in their thousands.
