Ebisu is in Tokyo’s Shibuya ward, about 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) south of Shibuya Station. Despite its proximity to the famously busy Shibuya crossing and the youthful energy associated with the surrounding area, Ebisu is a much more laid-back and understated locale. The hip district forms a trendy triangle with Nakameguro and Daikanyama to its west and, as well as lively bars and no-frills restaurants, Ebisu features pricey modern real estate and some super-high-end dining options.
Ebisu is a top place for drinking in Tokyo. To sample the current incarnation of Yebisu, the Beer Station beer hall in Yebisu Garden Place is a great choice, as it serves that and six other brews on tap.
More representative of Ebisu’s casual nightlife, however, are the area’s tachinomiya, or standing bars. Buri is a lively tachinomiya that serves 70 different varieties of one-cup sake from around Japan, alongside yakitori (grilled chicken skewers) and other izakaya staples. The atmosphere is similarly vibrant in Ebisu Yokocho, an alley crammed with 20 small restaurants and stalls.
There is a lot of sights and restaurants to try in Ebisu. It will definitely surprise you! :)
