A must-do experience. Worth returning, even after pub crawling the whole evening. You'll meet so many interesting people

This is a famous sightseeing spot in Tokyo called "Golden Gai". There are many small bars where you can enjoy a variety of drinks. People from different countries are visiting and you can talk and interact. It was a very very amaszing place for a valuable experience.

A small area of Tokyo, filled with small pubs, seating just 4-6 people in each. Entertaining bartenders, good stories, and a good time.

This little area is full of tiny bars, some only big enough for a few customers. Some don’t really want westerners, some are quite welcoming. Some charge a cover fee, some don’t. It’s a case of checking a few out and finding one that fits. Well worth a visit, even if it’s just one quick drink.

We had a pleasant wander around as reccomended by my stepson but it was a bit early so quiet. Would be intersting to see what it was like at night. Lots of little alleys to walk down with locals drinking and socialising.
