While it is still a little bit chilly on some days here in Hokkaido, from here on out it’s going to keep getting warmer and warmer. With that been said, we are looking forward to this years’ beer garden! This year there will be numerous occasions to enjoy the festivities, but in this blog we would like to introduce the main venue, Odori Park.

Event time: 12:00 ～ 21:00 (with some exceptions)
Location: Odori Park (5 chome to 8 chome, 10 chome, 11 chome)
Although there will be designated smoking area, this is a strictly non-smoking event.
5 chome location is serving Suntory Premium Malts 12:00-21:00 (LO 20:45)

As you can see there will be a huge variety of beers to try and around 13,000 seats set up around the park. We recommend trying local beers (sent directly from the factory) as well as some international beers as it is fun to compare tastes. You might even discover a great tasting beer that you never knew existed! Even though it is still a little chilly here in Sapporo, put on a light jacket and come and enjoy the beer garden!
