Al­ley­way Bar Hop­ping

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Hid­den be­tween the shiny high-rises of Tokyo’s me­trop­o­lis, yoko­chos— or old-school al­ley­ways filled with dive bars and eater­ies—are some of the best places to get a taste of the lo­cal cui­sine with­out blow­ing your bud­get. Th­ese back­streets boast some of the finest street food in Tokyo, and are of­ten open well into the night for noc­tur­nal souls and post-party rev­el­ers. Rub el­bows with Ja­panese salary­men at Golden Gai, one of the most buzzing yoko­chos in the city, which boasts more than 200 pubs and drink­ing dens packed within just a cou­ple of blocks. Each bar has its own unique char­ac­ter and vibe, and you can be sure to find plenty of cheap sake and beer to wash down plen­ti­ful plates of yak­i­tori, soba and sushi. Shin­juku-San­chome Sta­tion, exit B3 or E1. 1 Kabu­ki­cho, Shin­juku, Tokyo.
