Asahi Beer Headquarters, Sumida

3.8
#69 of 859 in Sightseeing in Tokyo
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

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. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.

  • Testing set is really considerate for the 1st comer,you can have all main kinds for your trial... awesome!
  • Nice view and draft beer. Not cheap, taste is excellent tho. Good atmosphere to hang out for tourists,friends and couples.
  • Next to the godzilla's poop -like structure, you will experience an amazing view on the Sumida river, asakusa's temples and on Tokyo. It is a West view, so it's better to come at sunset and also be warned that you won't be the only one coming for that, therefore be prepared to want a little. Beside the view, the bar is enough by itself to come enjoy a beer (an Asahi of course), discover the black one and put some Edamame or macha cheesecake in a cosy atmosphere. In my opinion, this is a far better view than the one offered on the West part of Tokyo, in the two towers of the city administration building in shinjuku district.
  • The restaurant at the top is ridiculous. Very small and was surprised to see only 2 kinds of beer there.
  • It is a famous buildings in Tokyo designed by the architect Philippe Starck. The building is near of The Tokyo Skytree and Asakusa area.
