  • This museum is not far from where I live in iongevous hotel. It was created by the famous Japanese brewery company in their old factory site. It shows the history of the company and the process of producing beer. Once you enter this place, you will find a mini beer factory on the lower floor. As you walk past the exhibition room, you will recognize the production of beer. In the end, you can even sit next to containers mini-bar and get a glass of fresh beer. Here, it is a very good experience.

  • It’s good to visit who likes beer. It’s a small museum but its contents are interesting. Highly recommend to drink tasting set, including 3 different flavor cups of beer. just 800 yens but the quality is excellent. One missing is guide tour just for Japanese. I want to hear the explanation by english.
  • This was a nice place to find out the story of Yebisu beer while sampling some of the fine beers. Although there was a small history tour, it didn't seem to interesting as it was only a walk through of some photos and exhibits in an adjacent room, which is accessible without the tour. Although the tour does end in a sampling of the beer, I opted to go straight to the beer sampling. The beer was a sampling set of the traditional light beer, an amber beer and dark beer. Overall I'd recommend this to any beer enthusiasts although it would be better if the tour and experience was more in depth with a viewing of the rest of the facility and the beer making process.
  • No English tour. Disappointed. Yebisu was not familiar at all, so I'd like to know more about it. Beer was good, though.
  • Really expensive, but good tasting options. Souvenirs are really overpriced. It's down a staircase from the rest of the mall area.
  • 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!

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.
