This week the "Sapporo Beer Garden" starts!
Running from July, 21 to August, 15 this is an event not to be missed! The festival covers Oodori park from West 5 to West 11. (That's right a whopping 6 blocks of outdoor beer venues!) The garden features all major Japanese brands of beer (including Hokkaido's own "Sapporo Beer") and international beers. Food is also available in each section.
This summer has averaged about 25.8 ℃ at 3pm - but it's bound to get hotter - so the beer garden is the place to be!
