    Access from Ebisu station. Down the Hill promenade, was shot through the left Ebisu Mitsukoshi Department store is located. If you are not a car, ¥ 500 fee yebisutsuaa is strongly recommended. Description of the exhibition and an exquisite bubbling beer-tasting and satisfaction over the price.

    Nice find there place in Ebisu was the first paid visits Saturday 11 am, and then 500 yen, finally a good beer can be tasted. Then drink beer here but can't drink, and will go only in the daytime. But the moment felt good beer. You can go many times.

    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.

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.
