The bartenders were dressed in buddhist clothing i guess, but i didn’t really experience any buddhist culture beyond that. Some of the drinks tasted good, but not that fancy. The food was really subpar.

Loved this bar. It has a cosy atmosphere in the main bar to the left which holds about 20 people. If the main bar is full there is an overflow bar to the right which can hold another 10-15 people which is much quieter. We...More

The bar is operated by group of Shinto Monks. Conceptually it is very good for going to the bar and discussing with monks in various topics. The monks might not be fluent in English but they can communicate. The bar is on the second floor...More

Nearby
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
