Mount Takao Beer Mount, Tokyo

Mount Takao Beer Mount, Tokyo

If you somehow manage to hike nearly 2,000 feet to the peak of Tokyo's Mount Takao, at the very least, you deserve a beer. With that in mind, one of the world's highest beer gardens opened here (at just over 1,600 feet), and it offers stunning views of Tokyo's skyscrapers and sprawl. Less athletically inclined visitors can still get their drink on at high altitudes, thanks to a cable car. 960 1280
