Mt. Takao Beer Mount

Mt. Takao Beer Mount

At the start of the Obon holiday this year, my friends and I made our way to the Mt. Takao Beer Mount, the highest beer garden in Tokyo.  The weather that day was daunting; dark, rainy and windy but we persevered and decided to make the trip.  Upon arrival to the station, an alert flashed across the message board warning that all seats were taken and that inevitably there would be a long wait. Thankfully though, due to the aforementioned bad weather, it took under 30 minutes to get inside.  At 3,000 yen for women/3,300 yen for men, all you can eat, all you can drink for 2 hours, with no half hour cut-off for last order, it was well worth the money.  We didn’t have seats overlooking the beautiful night view but we soon realized that the view is not the main attraction.  Italian food, beer, Chinese food, beer, Western food, beer, Japanese food, beer, and a chocolate foundation kept not only our stomaches, but our eyes satisfied as well.  The beer was not only limited to the typical nama beer but instead included such beers as Asahi Super Dry, Kirin Ichiban Shiburi, Heineken, Guinness, and Half and Half Beer.  To say the least, I recommend this summer attraction but I leave you with one piece of advice, pace yourself on the food otherwise you won’t be able to enjoy the booze!
