Enjoy a Cold Beer in a Lush Park
"Ueno Seiyoken was opened as early as 1872 by a French pioneer, acting as a trailblazer for many other French restaurants to follow. This beer garden really lets you enjoy a taste of nostalgia; in fact, it was one of the famous author Natsume Soseki's favorite spots in all of Tokyo. Located in Ueno Park, the view over the lush green park and Shinubazunoike, Ueno's own pond, sprawling beneath is both relaxing and inspiring.
As for food, our recommendation is the ""beef shoulder roast Genghis Khan-style in royal homemade tare sauce"" for 2,000 yen. The ""5 types of beer sausages"" assortment for 1,500 yen is also a great choice. Draft beer is 700 yen per regular glass and 720 for a medium-sized one. Sour ale can be savored for 540 yen. In the all-you-can-drink plan, costing 2,600 yen for two hours, you can enjoy a variety of drinks without any limit. The beer garden is open until the 11th of September, every day from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. On Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays, it opens at 4:00 p.m. already."
