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.

Night Food Stalls (Yatai)

Popular line of open-air food stalls on the southern end of Nakasu Island. Each one typically sits about 10 persons with the simple menus consisting of grilled chicken or meat skewers (yakitori), oden, and ramen (often the Hakata Ramen for which the city is also famous).

Nonbei Yokocho

Small, narrow alley a short distance from Shibuya station that is home to many kiosk-sized bars. A good place to make friends with the locals over a beer or strike up a conversation with the bartender (some speak English).

Harmonica Yokocho

Harmonica Yokocho actually started out as a black market in the post-war years but has since transformed into a small network of about 100 bars and restaurants.

Commune

This L-shaped area of shacks, caravans, food stalls, craft beer, and good coffee was originally set up as a temporary venue under the name Commune 246. It’s a fantastic little “for the community” venue that recreates something of an East London feel. A great place for a beer when the weather is good.
