The north view from Ebisu Garden Place Tower

The location of Ebisu is 6km south west away from Tokyo station. There used to be very large Japanese beer factory “Ebisu Beer” there. But Sapporo Beer, the owner company of Ebisu beer factory decided to move the factory function from there and a vast land was generated in the middle of Tokyo city. “Ebisu Garden Place” was created in 1994 by utilizing the land to produce a modern business and commercial complex.
