Tokio .Omoido Yokocho , in de volksmond “Piss alley” is zo,n smalle eetsteeg vol met Yakitori barretjes . de Izakaya,s zijn te herkennen aan de lantaarns die ze aan de gevel hebben hangen .  Japaners  vinden het onbeleefd om lopend te eten dus zitten is het ding. Japans is de voertaal dus aanwijzen wat je lekker vind is de kortste klap naar een altijd en een kom sake .

Klinkt als een tegeltjeswijsheid . Maar slenteren op het internet op zoek naar toffe plekken brengt me ook in een soort van vrolijke vakantie stemming .

In Amsterdam zit vlak bij de Rai een Izakaya “Hakata Senpachi ” daar moet je ff naar toe gaan. Man wat hebben we daar lekker gegeten .Of naar Tanuki Izakaya in Amstelveen

yokocho

By Kumi Nagano

Hidden in between and behind shiny high-rises, massive station complexes and other architectural monsters, Tokyo’s old-school alleyways or yokocho are treasure troves for anyone looking to experience the city’s less sterile, more down-to-earth side. Found all over town, Tokyo’s yokocho host thousands of tiny eateries, pubs and shops, some of them dating way back to the early postwar years, and provide opportunities for slipping back in time to the smoky, change-filled decades of the Showa era. Recent years have seen some yokocho become trendy locations for opening hip new restaurants, adding another flavour into the diverse mix of tastes, attitudes and customs found on these backstreets.

If you don’t mind a little neighbourly physical contact (many joints seat less than 10 patrons), yokocho eateries and izakayas are cheapo heaven. People’s booze, such as highballs, shochu and Hoppy, is often available from ¥100 or so, and the food maintains the same dirt-cheap standard without sacrificing quality. The alleys are also ideal for discovering the less stuffy sides of Japanese culture and making new drinking buddies. Do avoid going in big groups though, as there simply won’t be enough space for all of you. Here’s our comprehensive list of 17 fascinating yokocho – crawl through them all and you’ll have learned more about the city than many people ever will.

Omoide Yokocho (“Memory Lane”) is a small warren of yakitori and ramen restaurants located just north of Shinjuku Station that has become another one of Tokyo’s slightly off-beat tourist attractions. Despite the extra custom tourists bring, vendors are particularly unfriendly to those wielding cameras so if you want to take pictures of the stalls you are going to have to do so surreptitiously; otherwise expect to be met with a stern “No photo!” almost immediately.

DIRECTIONS

7-13-12 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 160-0023 | From the West Exit of JR Shinjuku Station: walk north on the right hand side of the road with the Keio Department store on your left; turn right when you see UNIQLO on the corner and you will see the green neon sign to Omoide Yokocho. From the East Exit of JR Shinjuku Station: walk along the left hand side by the rail tracks and go through the underpass; Omoide Yokocho is immediately on your left when you come out the other side.
