Built by Team Orange founder Nobushige Kumakubo, Ebisu is the ultimate destination for enthusiasts of the sideways sport from around the world.

FYI: Ebisu is in the Shibuya ward of Tokyo, Japan. Conveniently near Roppongi and Shibuya, Ebisu is easily accessed by the JR Yamanote and Hibiya lines via Ebisu Station. Its small size makes for a comfortable atmosphere. As you can see this quiet neighborhood is the place where drifters pull a stop.
