Since one of our members will be making a trip to Tokyo again this week, here is an introduction to 2 interesting spots in Shinjuku, the area in Tokyo which never sleeps. 😄
Located in the Golden Gai(新宿ゴールデン街, “街” is Japanese for “streets”), this area boasts the most number of bars and pubs clumped together.
Why this place, you may ask.
It is a simple bar which seats about 8+ people comfortably, but the master knows his stuff, and can put together any drinks to suit your whim and tastes.
Also, this place has also been featured in many famous Japanese magazines such as “Men’s Ex”, “Otona no Shumatsu”, and even in the famous travel mook, “Shinjuku Walker”!
Alright, so the above establishment may not be up your alley if you are looking for more otaku-ish places.
In that case, how about:
Sub-culture Café and Bar, New Type Shinjuku
If you are into the sub-culture scene, this place will be perfect for you!
Besides the great food and drinks, which may have otaku origins, this place also holds events on certain days.
For example, the all night karaoke session from Friday night all the way to early Saturday morning,
or even the table-top game and Monster Hunter game sessions on Saturdays!
Kindly refer to the main page above for the latest updates regarding events.
The above 2 places can handle conversations in English(simple ones anyway…), so do not worry about communication problems and give them a try! ^_^b
