“HAPPO-EN” in Shirokanedai is known for its beautiful Japanese garden. After strolling in the garden, enjoy a healthy and relaxing time with fresh vegetables and delicious craft beer at the “Farm to Table Beer Terrace 2019”, which is open only during the summer months!
A walk in the park – ehm, garden!
The HAPPO-EN Garden, which has a history of more than 100 years, has a large pond, a small waterfall, and a tea house.
The lush green everywhere in the garden is very calming and relaxing. You can even book a tea ceremony experience at the tea house!
Relaxing on the beer terrace overlooking the garden
If you want to sit down and have a drink after your stroll through the Japanese garden, why don’t you visit the “Thrush Cafe”? Right now, this restaurant has a beer terrace event which is going on until August 31st.
The beer terrace offers a menu (reservation required) that includes free drinks, an appetizer plate, a healthy vegetable buffet, and vegetable pasta. This sounds healthy, right? Also, it’s a great choice for vegetarians and vegans -which is still quite rare in Tokyo with limited meal options.
If you do like to have a meat dish, you can change the pasta to meat, or order it as an additional dish.
At the beer terrace, you can choose from the all-you-can-drink menu, offering an original craft beer called “Farm to Ale Kaoru Weizen” and “Asahi Extra Cold”. Japan has grown as a craft beer making country and the beer at the restaurant was a good example of the Japanese brewers’ skills.
It was delicious and exactly the kind of taste you’d ask for when relaxing outside on a beer terrace. For anyone interested in Japanese craft beer, this restaurant is a great choice. In addition to the beer, the all-you-can-drink menu has several cocktails using their vegetables and whiskey.
After a stroll through the lovely Japanese garden, why don’t you relax on the quiet beer terrace?
