Ebisu Yokocho (恵比寿横丁)
A small alley of 19 inexpensive drinking and eating spots located on the ground floor of an apartment building. Each place is different in the food and drink they serve so there is plenty of variety. The entrances to the alley are not that apparent to non-Japanese readers, they are identifiable by a cluster of vertical signs by a long white sign for the businesses each a different color.
