Nice Bars in Shinjuku(Tokyo)   Leave a comment

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. XD

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

Moe… eh… Alcohol…?   Leave a comment

For the past few posts, we had otaku only info, then food related info… for this latest post, how about both? XD

 

Spending a few years working in Japan meant having to drink occasionally, and the cheap prices for alcohol compared to Singapore did not help matters either. The relative cheapness of wines and sake meant that even anime, manga or even illustrators can produce a line of moe alcohol!

Here are a few examples:

KanColle sake, last we heard, they were still available at anime retailers like Animate.

May look familiar, as this is the same illustrator as the Madoka☆Magica series.

(*Sorry, we drank the contents before remembering to take a photo… XD)

This photo was taken at the event where they revealed this Touken Ranbu product for the first time.

 

The bottles had a hollow center design to hold the slip of paper with the illustration. Sakura sake, by the way. Oh, and should also be still available in shops like Animate.

Some of the other collaborations also included: Macross Frontier, King of Braves GaoGaiGar, Maison Ikkoku, and so on. What other titles have you seen with an alcohol collaboration so far? Xp
