Although Japanese craft breweries have seen a recent rise, 'Mikkeller' represents a different type of brewery in Japan -- a Danish bar. The odd fusion brewery was opened in the gentrified district of Udagawacho, near Shibuya Station. The bar and brewery feature 15 different taps of beer, ten of which are from Scandinavian countries while the other five feature local brews.
The interior of the bar perfectly merges the unique styles of Scandinavian and Japanese simplicity. The skillful integration of both cultures results in a quaint and cozy shop that features a traditional Japanese cedar ceiling. Contrast this zen-themed interior with warm blue Nordic furniture and flooring. Stools and tables are also available outside for overflow, making Mikkeller the hippest brewery in Japan.
