Ebisu Yokocho was built on the site of a former shopping district called Yamashita Shopping Center. Because the Yamashita Shopping Center was abandoned, the district was changed to the current layout where unique eateries have gathered. There are lots of small taverns lines up in the building, and it is always lively because the distance between the customers and the shopkeepers is close. Many taverns have a nostalgic retro atmosphere, like 1950s Showa era in Japan. Ebisu Yokocho has recently become a popular place to enjoy cheap and tasty Izakaya foods without worrying about the weather.
