Classic Japanese-style Pub

Classic Japanese-style Pub

This is my favorite Izakaya which means Japanese-style pub. The shop policy is that only women, even solo, entering it can be declined. It serves around ten dishes or more and beer and sake(Japanese rice wine). There is no background music. Members of small group are gently talking  with one another while drinking and eating. At the counter, each single customer quietly savors everything including the old- style atmosphere. In my tour,  The western part of Tokyo , in Edo Tokyo Tatemonoen, the main destination, there is the original shop building where opened in 1856. However, I think that the current shop sufficiently preserves the old tradition. Would you like to feel the atmosphere of such an Izakaya culture? If so, why don't you join me?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
