The annual craft beer festival will take place this Saturday in downtown Kyoto.
To be more precise, it will take place on the city's best shopping arcade: Sanjo Arcade. Thus, safely under the roof, rain will not affect the merry-making.
Tickets can be pre-purchased for 2000 yen for a packet of six. Each ticket entitles the bearer to one seven ounce beer.
On the day of the festival, one seven ounce cup costs 400 yen.
Tickets can be purchased here. Online purchasing is not available, and tickets cannot be used to purchase food or any other items.
Many of Japan's best craft brewers will be on hand.
For cyclists, it is a short hop from Nijo Castle or central Kyoto.
Note: it is of course illegal to cycle while inebriated.
