Literally translating as “Yurakucho Fresh Produce Drinking & Eating Town”, it’s a big name for what is a small indoor alley. Like Ebisu Yokocho this is actually more of a concept than a traditional yokocho—in this case the idea is to promote fresh produce from the regions. The yokocho contains seven restaurants offering food ranging from beef from Hokkaido to horse meat from Kyushu and fish from Shizuoka. Prices are a little steep but you are partly paying for the atmosphere.
