Tokyo’s Golden Gai is a Labyrinth of six narrow alleys hosting over 200 tiny bars;  some with a maximum capacity of six people!. There are a few private club/bars and most are open to public.  Do to their small size and to avoid bar-hoppers, most charge a small cover that includes  a little appetizer.  Our advice is don’t sweat the cover – you’re on vacation!

Bar Otokichi was our favorite,  a very friendly local crowd and the barman (who we think lives upstairs?)  kept up an amazing mix of rare, upbeat old jazz tracks….. and the shochu with matcha green tea is defenately worth the try!

Give yourselves an hour or two in Golden Gai before heading to the Robot Restaurant!
