Went on the tour with friends. Impressive and unexpectedly grandiose interior offering a short guided tour mainly comprising of old photographs, bottles, advertisements etc. Gives you a sense of what the surrounding area was like before it was developed into what it is today. Tour...More

A small museum in the quiet Ebisu area. They run tours every 20 minutes for 500 yen per person. The tours are in Japanese but do include 2 beers at the end. If you cannot speak Japanese (like we can't) it may be better to...More

This museum is free if self tour, or you can join a group that includes tasting. A very well done presentation of the rich history of this beer company.

Interesting place combined with great beer. I couldn't join the tour because they only have it in Japanese language. However there a cafe where you can enjoy the beer and some food at the of your visit. It's recommended.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
