Offering comfortable spaces


The Yebisu Garden Place was designed and is managed under the concept of “creation of a space which people who work, play or live in spend a luxurious time.” Furthermore, the “Yebisu Skywalk,” the moving sidewalk that connects the Yebisu Station with the Yebisu Garden Place, features braille blocks.



Ever since the Sapporo Factory opened in 1993 as a large-scaled commercial complex featuring approximately 160 shopping, restaurants and amusement facilities, botanical displays are located throughout the facility and outside of the landmark, to create pleasant spaces for customers. Additionally, universal design has been incorporated into various fixtures such as handrails for stairs, sequentially making improvements in the facility environment with consideration toward safety for a diverse range of customers.

Yebisu Garden Place

Yebisu Garden Place Tower is a safe, earthquake-resistant building that has undergone structural evaluation and obtained ministerial approval on a solid foundation. Although the building has sufficient earthquake resistance at present, seismic damping equipment will be installed in preparation for a major earthquake with long-period seismic motion, which is predicted to occur in the future. This will ensure the safety and security of office workers, tenants, and visitors to the building.
