Oktoberfest is the world's largest beer event, and it's held every year in Munich, Germany from mid-September to early October. Japan also has a number of Oktoberfest events, and one for Tokyoites to enjoy this summer is the Hibiya Oktoberfest.
The fun takes place for almost two weeks at Hibiya Park, and includes a large selection of German draft beers to try, plenty of gourmet foods that pair well with the brews on offer, various stage performances, and more.
Adult admission to the event is ¥500 and food/drink is charged separately, but credit cards and electronic money cards (e.g. PASMO and Suica) can be used. Please also note the hours of the event differ from weekdays to weekends. On the first day of the event and all weekdays, the hours are 3pm - 9.30pm and on weekends the hours are from 11am - 9.30pm (last orders at 9pm).
Hibiya Park is located just a minute on foot from Kasumigaseki Station's C3 Exit. The station is served by the Tokyo Metro's Chiyoda, Marunouchi, and Hibiya lines.
For those visiting by car, the Times Hibiya parking lot is charged at a rate of ¥300 per 30 minute increment.
