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.

Kukansha in Long Beach 1983

Beautiful cafe in one of the most remote areas of the island—which must also qualify as Tokyo’s most distant (after all, you’re still in Tokyo Metropolis in Hachijojima). The cakes were excellent and the views from the upper balcony magnificent.

A popular night street in Asakusa. The izakaya and yakitori restaurants on either side of the road extend themselves in the evening with plastic tables and chair, making for a lively and enjoyable atmosphere.

Run-down rows of drinking alleys filled with dilapidated bars that has become icon of the Showa era. This places is not just for tourists: many Japanese musicians and celebrities also frequent the cubbyhole-sized establishments.
