惠比壽花園宮(Yebisu Garden Place)

惠比壽花園宮(Yebisu Garden Place)建於1994年,原址是札幌啤酒惠比壽工廠舊址。入口處右側是啤酒廣場,安放有巨大的啤酒發酵罐的可容納數百人同時就餐的啤酒站惠比壽大型餐廳十分著名。建築風格古老的惠比壽啤酒紀念館介紹札幌啤酒的發展史。高39層的惠比壽花園塔樓頂層有高檔餐廳,可邊用餐邊欣賞東京夜景。左側是惠比壽三越百貨店、札幌啤酒株式會社總部,正面是中心廣場和威斯廷汀飯店。此外,惠比壽還有東京都寫真美術館,惠比壽花園劇場等文化設施。由惠比壽車站至花園宮的數百米長廊內的自動人行道也十分方便。

Yebisu Garden Place (恵比寿ガーデンプレイス) is one of Tokyo's most pleasant cities within the city. Consisting of roughly a dozen buildings and skyscrapers, it features a large array of restaurants and shops including a Mitsukoshi department store, the Westin Tokyo hotel, the Michelin 3-star Chateau Restaurant Taillvent-Robuchon, offices, residential space and a photography museum.

Yebisu Garden Place is built on the former site of a beer brewery, where the still existing Yebisu Beer brand had been brewed since 1890. Interestingly, it was the beer brand which gave the later developing town and railway station of Ebisu* its name, and not the other way around.

The Museum of Yebisu Beer commemorates the original brewery, displays exhibits about the history and science of beer brewing in Japan and the world and offers beer tasting. After a visit to the beer museum, you may want to consider a meal and drink at the beer restaurant "Beer Station".

* "Ebisu" is the modern way to write "Yebisu", as the syllable "ye" and corresponding kana characters have almost completely disappeared from the modern Japanese language and been replaced by the "e".
