Close to Asakusa and by the banks of the Kanda River, the Asahi Beer Hall and Tokyo Skytree are some of the best known buildings in Tokyo. Completed in 1989 and designed by Philippe Starck, the Asahi Beer Hall, which actually happen to be the Asahi Breweries Japan HQ, is made of a building shaped like a glass of beer with foam on its top. Right by it side you will find another construction, also part of the Asahi Beer Hall, better known as the “golden turd” (Nickname given to the Asahi Flame by locals).
