Statue of Ebisu, Ebisu Station, Tokyo

Ebisu Station in Tokyo is named after Yebisu Beer, which had a large brewery in this area in the early 20th century. A freight station was built in 1901 to serve the brewery and was called Yebisu Station. In 1906 a passenger station was opened nearer to Shinjuku and was called Ebisu Station -  a case of a place name evolving from a brand.
