Here was also equal to the countryside during the Edo Period (1603-1867), and then Yebisu brewery was built in 1889. Yebisu brewery was built in imitation of a German architecture at that time, and all production equipment also imported from Germany. Since the birth of Yebisu brewery, this area person was enraged gradually exuberant.
Today Yebisu is also a fashionable area in Tokyo, the former site of Yebisu brewery has been converted into Yebisu Garden Plaza, where is full of business atmosphere. Grand hotels, department stores, cinemas, assembly halls and so on, from soup to nuts, so Yebisu Garden Plaza is usually used as a filming site.
