The Ebisu Garden Place is the original home of the Ebisu Beer Brewery. Today it is an elegant city within a city filled with lots to eat, see and do. As the former site of a world famous brewery there is of course plenty to drink as well. With plenty of shops and lifestyle stores to explore, this is the perfect spot to spend a calm afternoon away from the busier parts of Tokyo. The area's many restaurants also make it a great spot for lunch or dinner.

Find your niche in this expertly-planned plaza of curiosities. You'll feel at ease strolling past the beautiful fountains and flowers that adorn the shopping and dining areas. The open design will take your breathe away as you pass beneath the grand arches. Take a picture in front of the magnificent Le Chateau de Joel Robuchon restaurant. Or better yet, go inside for some world-class cuisine.
A main attraction here is the original Yebisu Brewery, from which the whole town gets its namesake and is also one of Tokyo's rare red brick buildings. You'll also find the Museum of Yebisu Beer, opened in celebration of the beer's 120th birthday. You'll get to learn about the brewery's history, and of course sample a bit of their premium brew.
The best way to take advantage of the fine offerings and pseudo-European atmosphere of the Garden Place is to stay there yourself. Book a room at the five-star Westin Tokyo Hotel and the Yebisu Garden Place is right at your doorstep. All this luxury makes for a near-royal experience.
Tokyo is full of great places to see winter illumination displays, and Yebisu Garden Place is no exception. What makes this one so special is that it's already such a dazzling location. In spring time, the cherry blossoms along the nearyby Meguro River are a must see.
