Ebisu Yokocho: A Lively Alley In The Fancy Area Of Ebisu!

Ebisu is known for being a fashionable area. If you go there, you'll see plenty of upscale restaurants and boutiques. However, not everything is expensive. Very close to the station, you can even find the Ebisu Yokocho, which is a lively yokocho alley packed with reasonably-priced taverns.

Feel free to follow favy!

Ebisu Yokocho is just a 2-minute walk from the East Exit of the Ebisu Station. You should not have any problem to find it when you get near as there are bright neon signs and lanterns indicating the entrances.

The area was developed in an attempt to rejuvenate an old shopping arcade. That endeavor was obviously very successful, as Ebisu Yokocho becomes one of the most crowded, liveliest spots in Ebisu at night!

In an era of super-chain izakayas, the idea behind the Ebisu Yokocho was to make an unpretentious space where people can enjoy the traditional yokocho alley atmosphere while encouraging independent taverns and restaurants.

Walking through the narrow paths of the yokocho, you'll see plenty of types of foods and taverns. Every place is independent and unique. You'll find sushi, skewered grilled fish, Korean-style barbecue, and many more!
You can find meat sushi.
Original drinks such as this matcha sour are available. Sour drinks are shochu-based (a kind of Japanese spirit) and are very popular in Japan.
Stewed foods and french fries are always nice to have at taverns!

We tried out a place where you can order teppanyaki (iron plate grilling) foods cooked right before our eyes! We ordered this mountain of veggies with some tofu and meat in it. The price was quite reasonable.

This is the perfect type of food to share with friends while drinking. What's nice about Ebisu Yokocho is that it's really easy to start up a conversation with the people around you. People go there to have a good time with friends, but also to socialize with strangers. Ebisu Yokocho is particularly with young people. Definitely, check it out while you are in Tokyo!
