Ebisu Station in Shibuya ward, Tokyo, is in the middle of the Ebisu neighborhood, historically associated with a brewery, and well known today for its culinary culture, with numerous bars and restaurants around, most notably represented by the nearby Yebisu Garden Place cultural, shopping and dining complex.

Ebisu Station is named after Yebisu Beer, which had a large brewery in the area in the early 20th century, operated by what is now Sapporo Breweries (and now the site of Yebisu Garden Place). A freight station built in 1901 to serve the brewery was called Yebisu Station. Then five years later, a passenger station was opened nearer to Shinjuku and was also called Ebisu Station: a case of a place name deriving from a brand name.
