Asahi Beer Headquarters, Sumida

3.7
#164 of 2,120 in Things to do in Tokyo
One of the most popular beer manufacturers in Japan, Asahi Beer Headquarters also represents one of the most intriguing modern architectural curiosities in Tokyo. The headquarters have two main buildings: the taller resembling a colossal beer mug along with a "foam" roof, and the shorter one shaped like a beer glass with a golden flame-shaped object on the top. If all that makes you thirsty, head to one of the two bars or quality restaurants on the 22nd floor of the latter.

  • The headquarters of Asahi Beer is one of the most intriguing architectural wonders of Tokyo. It has two main buildings, the largest stand of one hundred meters high building and resembles a pitcher of beer giant complete with roof in the form of white foam. The shorter building known as the Super Dry Hall is a building of black beer glass shaped glass, with a huge golden flame on top-shaped object. To reach the General Headquarters of Asahi Beer, take subway Ginza line station Asakusa (station G-19), or line Asakusa (station A-18). For JR users, get off at Ueno, and take the underground of Ginza a few stations to Asakusa (station G-18).

  • Second time coming here. Less of a selection of beer this time. But, the Extra Cold is always amazing. The bar type food was pretty good and the view as always is amazing. The cost of the beer is very...  more »
  • It must be said that we got but the building looks like a real glass of beer. You will see it definitely going on foot towards the tokyo sky tree.

  • The sky bar at the top of Asahi tower has lots of potential but is pretty dang poor in execution. The staff appear not to know what they're doing, when their only role is to pour beer and point people to an empty table. They also impose a queueing system, despite there being clearly empty rows of seats behind them on the day I visited. The views are amazing but the whole interior decor is cheap and tacky. Wipe clean varnished plywood tables reminiscent of a stay in a 1980s budget family holiday camp. Bare magnolia walls with no decoration. No wifi. Hard to find too, with bad signposting. Come on guys, do better.
  • Great place to have a beer and enjoy the view, the menu at the restaurant is pretty basic and the place is kinda small but it's worth it!
  • A small venue and pricey beers, but with an excellent view of Tokyo, Skytree, and Mount Fuji.
  • Looks nice from the outside, but currently closed for the holidays, reopens on January 2nd.
  • Fancy architecture.. what's that golden thing on the roof anyway!? ;-)

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
