The facade of the Asahi Group's headquarter building was designed in the image of a beer mug.
This is Asahi Group's main building, which is located close to the Sumida ward office and was completed in 1989. It has a very impressive external appearance; the amber-colored glass and the white wall at the top part represent a mug filled with beer, one of the leading products of Asahi Group. On the 21st and 22nd floors of the building is a restaurant full of luxurious ambiance, and you can enjoy dining while overlooking the Sumida River and the townscape of Asakusa from 100 meters above the ground. Also, the Super Dry Hall, which was designed by Philippe Starck, a French designer, is located next to the building. An ”objet” of a fire flame on top of the hall is very eye-catching, as well. Within the Azumabashi building, there are not only an event hall but also a beer hall where you can taste quality-controlled Super Dry draft beer. The closest station is the Asakusa Station on the Ginza Line, Asakusa Line, and Tobu Isesaki Line.(The office part of the building is off-limits)
