Neighborhoods Ebisu

Spirit

Located in south-west Tokyo, Ebisu is just a few blocks away from some of the liveliest districts in Tokyo yet is quieter and more distinguished. For Tokyo locals, it is synonymous with good taste, sophistication, and prestige. It includes the largest photography museum in the capital, a Mitsukoshi departmet store, and many izakaya, Japanese taverns with casual atsmopheres for dining with friends. Within walking distance (one metro stop away) is the heart of wild and crazy Shibuya (a district for the younger crowd), the banks of the canal of the charming Meguro district, and the chic streets of Daikanyama.


Pluses

Ebisu has quick access to the Yamanote line (with service to Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ueno, Tokyo, and more...) while remaining an island of calm and well-being. Around the station, there are more restaurants and cute little boutiques than one has time to visit, not to mention the prestigious Garden Place and Photography Museum.

Minuses

If you are seeking "authentic Japanese," the surrounding of Garden Place may seem a little too "European," with its brick buildings and large, paved square. There are also not too many supermarkets.

Shops

New district information coming soon.
