Beer, shopping, and "salon de junko".

The Ebisu (Yebisu) Beer Museum is in Shibuya, Japan. As far as beer museums go I really enjoyed visiting this one, and recommend it to anyone looking to kill some time in the area.

Some ladies dressed up in kimono shopping. Totally unrelated, and not even in Shibuya, but a common sight nonetheless.

Most trains have women only cars which are particularly nice during rush hour.

Mom and daughter in town. We got lost trying to  find the museum, and some other "foreigners" helped us find our way  :-).

There was a farmer's market! Hooray! It seems like fresh food markets are fairly common in most towns when fruits and veggies are in season.

Giant beer can made of beer cans. 

Huuuuuuuge foyer as you enter the  museum. Beer museum to the left, and gift shop/beer tasting area to the right.

Anything and everything beer related for purchase.

 Commercial for a beer hall.

Typical bar snacks. Yum! If you want to see some really cool plastic food I recommend visiting the Kitchen District in Asakusa. Cool displays and every kitchen appliance/utensil you can think of is available to buy.

Yebisu featured in Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. 2.

There is a mall adjacent to the beer museum. Beer tasting (check), hula girl lamp (check).

Japanese BK menu.

Next door...


I got a chicken sandwich. It was delicious, but I didn't expect the skin to still be on the chicken breast.

Get hitched at the beer museum.

Assorted yebisu beer sweat towels.

Happy stuffed Yebisu man.

The mall also had a gourmet grocery area too. Score!

I got the coffee gelatin (center). Again, delicious.

This man had a stroller for his pups. :-)

One of the gaudiest stores I've ever been to.

Different store, and yet another awesome display.

Salon de junko.

Long nails are a big deal apparently.
