The Izakaya experience

Izakaya are a quintessential part of Japanese food culture and a trip to Japan would not be complete without a visit to one. What is an izakaya? An izakaya is often translated as a pub or a tavern but this doesn’t really answer the question, basically, Izakaya are part pub part restaurant, more akin to a gastropub, and are considered casual places where friends or co-workers gather over drinks and food for a good time. The food can be described as ‘small plates’ and can consist of everything from yakitori to sashimi to grilled seafood or pickles and edamame. Dishes are ordered and shared among everyone. This allows everyone to get a taste of everything and is a great way to sample a large variety of dishes accompanied by a cold drink and good conversation. 

Akabane Retro Dining

A visit to Akabane’s lantern-lit Ichibangai street and its plethora of alleys packed of old school Izakayas (restaurants/pubs), standing bars, sweet shops, and bars is a unique experience harking back to Showa era Tokyo and one that will entice your senses. Popular with Tokyo workers, many of its bars open from morning, catering to workers finishing their night shifts and the bars generally start filling up from early afternoon.
The area sprung up from a post-war black market and still retains some of that historic charm. It is now popular for its delicious eateries serving traditional food and drinks in a laid back, unpretentious atmosphere. It’s not uncommon for friendly locals, enjoying a night out, to strike up a conversation and you may end up with new friends, at least for the night.  A night out in Akabane is certainly going to be one to never forget. The area with its laid back and unpretentious charm is known
