A bustling city located on the eastern bank of the Sagami River, Ebina is a town famous for its industrial heritage with a focus on the making of electrical appliances. It has a spectrum of attractions in the city too, with shopping malls, parks and sake breweries making up the cultural fabric of the streets and boulevards.
Since its establishment in the 1850s Izumibashi Sake Brewery has been making top-quality nihonshu (Japanese rice wine) taking advantage of the area's natural bounty such as rice fields and water flowing from nearby Mount Tanzawa. Sake is important to Ebina but so is retail with a branch of the famous Lalaport shopping group. Lalaport Ebina is a shopper's paradise and offers a multitude of shopping experiences from fast fashion to more luxury brands as well as restaurants and cafes for a chance to rest before shopping some more. With nature and city experiences combined, Ebina offers something for everyone.
