Our hotel was right by the Golden Gai so we decided to walk around the alleys at some of the bars, they are very dimly lit which is unusal for Tokyo but nearly all of them have a cover charge of some sort. Some of them charge between 1000-2000 yen per person, this is about £8-£16 each BEFORE you buy a drink. I am sure that some of these bars are actually someones front room, they put a piece of wood up and call it a bar and put two chairs in there. A couple of others we looked in had access to other floors so they might have been more roomy but as drink is so expensive in Tokyo we decided not to add a further £16 on top of any bill. During the day we walked around but the area is dead and everything is closed.
