Yebisu beer museum

Rainy days in Tokyo are better spent inside museums. Thats why we went to the Yebisu beer museum. The museum explains the history of Yebisu beer. Some beer tasting is included in the (paid) guided tour. There is also a souvenir shop with a lot of Yebisu beer products, as well as a snack bar.

Excerpt from Yebisu beer museum on the origin of the Ebisu train station : Along with increacins shipments, railways transportation became necessary, and in February 1901, a freight station exclusive for Yebisu Beer was built on the brewery site. The station was named “Yebisu Station”. Then, in 1906, current “Ebisu Station” was opened closer to Shibuya Station, named after the brand name of “Yebisu” and began passenger services. In 1928, the names of surrounding areas such as Dateato of Shimoshibuya in Shibuya Village were changed to 1-chome and 2-chome Ebisu-dori. This was a rare case of an origin of a train station and later a place name from a brand.

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
