Just like last summer, Tokyoites will be required to conserve electricity, so the hotel's beer garden will be a place to retreat from the heat. The beer garden in Shiba Park has 1,000 seats and offers a barbecue with draft beer and other drinks in a lush, green environment, with great views of Tokyo Tower.

There are three barbecue menus to choose from: teppanyaki (iron-plate grill), seafood barbecue and amiyaki (mesh grill), starting from ¥4,000.

A la carte Western, Chinese and Japanese side dishes and desserts are also available from ¥500. Kirin's new "frozen beer" is also available.

A glass of draft beer costs ¥800, with other drinks starting from ¥500. A two-hour unlimited drink plan is available for ¥2,500.

The beer garden is open from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with last orders at 9 p.m.

The Tokyo Prince Hotel is a 1-minute walk from Onarimon Station on the Toei Mita Line or a 7-minute walk from Daimon Station on The Toei Oedo Line. For more information, call (03) 5400-1170 or visit www.princehotels.co.jp/tokyo/plan/beer_garden.

Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo renewal open

Tokyo's Roppongi area is known as an entertainment district, and the theme-restaurant chain Hard Rock Cafe has been there since July 4, 1983. On June 19, the restaurant will reopen with a completely new look.

For almost 30 years, the restaurant has served customers its substantial American cuisine in a chic interior design that followed the taste of the first Hard Rock Cafe in London.

This year, the restaurant went through an extensive renewal and installed cutting-edge technology to create a new landmark for Tokyoites.

A 3-D projection system is equipped on the exterior, allowing passersby to view the spectacle. The advanced projection technology creates 3-D images that can be viewed with bare eyes.

The interior has a modern design and touchscreen panels are installed on the walls to allow guests to see the restaurant's extensive collection of music memorabilia.

At the gift shop, limited-edition souvenirs such as the Bye Bye Gorilla Pin will be available.

The Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo is a 5-minute walk from Roppongi Station on the Toei and Tokyo Metro lines. For more information, call (03) 3408-7018 or visit www.hardrockjapan.com.
