Specialty Museum Museum
Savor the flavors and discover the history of one of the country's longest established breweries at Museum of Yebisu Beer. The history of the beer dates back to 1887, when agricultural workers began making beer on local farmland according to German brewing methods, and three years later the company formed. The museum opened in 2010 to celebrate 120 years since the brewery's founding, offering 40-minute tours conducted by experts, where you'll find out all about the history of the company, the methods used, and their range of beers. A tasting session at the end of the tour allows you to try out all you've learnt about beer tasting and notice the subtleties of each beer.

  • Ebisu station Museum. Once the admission is free and the cost of the tour is 500 yen. I think hopefully to meet the Japanese. Beer was included ... 400 Yen to sell beer inside.

  • I went in and 2:00 PM on weekdays, delicious beer. To us recommending a yebisutsuaa was going to go to the tasting Salon is just starting for information and participate in 500 yen. While looking forward to after the beer tasting tours, so ♫ around us tour history webisubiru for about 20 minutes or so and how to drink! Tasting Golden webisubiru and amber Yebisu two drinking is the cascade both dry throat were tasty! Food salt Edamame soy beans are delicious! The tail of a sea bream from the breast pocket of the Communicator's sister was so cute ♫

  • Yebisu is one of Japan’s oldest breweries, dating to 1887, as its museum guides would like to point out. You probably won’t know that the guide is pointing that out, because guided tours are in Japane...  more »

  • Worth a visit for beer lover!! The museum part is compact with a good history of Yebisu Beer. Unfortunately I visited quite last and missed the tour (last one was 17:10 if I recall correctly while the place closes at 19:00), I still had a great time enjoying the beer (5 different kinds in total - I ordered the tasting set with 3 mini-pint beers and 2 more regular pints) and the gallery myself. Recommended!
  • Cute museum! The tour is only in Japanese but at 500 yen for 2 beers we decided to go for it. Well worth it! The tour guide was lovely and kind and even answered some of my questions in English. We had an English brochure guide and the beer at the end was delicious and smooth.
  • The museum part of this museum is pretty sparse. Another review said something like "it's a chill place to try some good beers". While this is very accurate, there are more chill places to drink better beer. But alas, the museum is free, it's raining, I've trekked out here, and they do have beer.
  • 東京でワンコインで遊べる最高のライブ I was told that there is a mist shower between the foam and the beer. Can you understand? Continually refill foam, prevent beer from coming into contact with air, keep fresh and delicious.
  • if you love beer, you should visit the museum. price is very cheap for a beer. the atmosphere is nice and you can join the tour if you know Japanese witch can enjoy different beer.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
