Rooftop BBQ Beer Garden
on top of Hotel Avanshell Kyoto

There's one week left before the summer roof-top all-you-can-feast BBQ-and-beer garden at the Hotel Avanshell Kyoto closes forever. I've been meaning to post about it for ages, but time has conspired against me, and now it's almost over. This is the final week for this season, and since the hotel itself will close down at the end of the year, final is final. If you're in Kyoto next week, don't miss it! The last day is Sunday the 9th. I already have my reservation.

今週最後だ!ホテル アバンシェル京都のすばらしい焼き肉食放題ビール飲み放題今月9日(日)で終わり。残念ながら今年最後、今週最後のチャンス。おすすめです!

For adults, ¥3,500 gets you two hours of all-you-can eat/drink gluttony, with a variety of foods and drinks, though beer and yakiniku BBQ are the main attractions.

I've been a number of times throughout the summer, so this post is made up of a mixture of shots from all the trips.

Prior blog posts that came from visits here include “Impromptu Portraiture Practice: Bill in Kyoto”, when I tried a new approach to portraiture with a stranger I met, and some shots of me sporting “Uniqlo Dry Color T: My New Summer Wardrobe”.


One comment so far...

Such a shame to see this go. One of my first experiences of Japan was a place like this. As an Australian it was like a dream come true, two hours of BBQ meat and beer. No one in Australia believed me when I told them of such a place. LOL. Enjoy the meal Jeffrey and have a beer for me……….

I did this evening, about five or six times over, along with a couple of cows. It was glorious. —Jeffrey
