Craft Beer -Microbrewery- in GinzaMonday, 2 July 2012
I photographed for a beer bar newly opened in Ginza last month for work. The place is called beer lupulin and they serve Japanese craft beer (microbrewery) which is booming in Japan right now. The space is so lovely and cozy, nice and casual being in the heart of Ginza which is known as an expensive area to do anything. Their food is great too, but the kakigoori (shaved ice) they serve is something very special to mention - they use ice made of natural water from Nikko （天然氷）and today there are only a handful of places where you can have this kind of shaved ice in Tokyo. The ice is so fine and fluffy, it is remarkably delicious especially with the handmade Japanese ume plum sauce...! If you are in Ginza do drop by for some great beer and kakigoori, it's on the third floor of a building right in front of Dover Street Market - the very cool and much talked-about new spot in Ginza (if you love COMME des GARÇONS you must go check, rose bakery also on the 7th floor!).
