10 Theme Restaurant & Bars in Tokyo

10 Theme Restaurant & Bars in Tokyo

One of the best places to dine and refresh oneself after a very tiring day of work is a restaurant bar. In Japan, we call restaurant bars as "Izakaya". Izakaya, literally, are places or restaurants in Japan where you can stay to drink alcoholic beverages which are also oftentimes served together with good food. What makes a typical Japanese restaurant bar or izakaya different from Western ones is the way customers remove their shoes, sit on tatami mats and dine on traditional Japanese tables. People usually go to izakayas by groups and sit on tables of 4 or more. Although solo goers are also welcome. Depending on the izakaya, non-traditional customers can also opt to dine with the usual Western-style table and chair. Izakayas are famous all over Japan. But a metropolitan city like Tokyo still has something unique with its izakayas which make them famous locally and internationally because these are bars you won't just see in a typical town. Here are 10 of the unique and unusual izakayas in Tokyo which you would like to visit during your stay in Japan.

Yukiko taught an origami lesson to three children, 8,10, and 12 years old. She was wonderful! She began with simple objects and moved to increasingly complicated creations as the kids caught on quickly through her patient and skillful instruction. She wore a kimono which they also loved, and really enjoyed their time with her. I'd highly recommend Yukiko to any family!

Dai provided our group of 9 with 2 fun-filled days. Dai was very patient and accommodated the needs of everyone in our group. Without him, we would not have seen half the places we did! He made navigating the transportation systems of both Tokyo and Hakone a breeze. I wish we had more time in Japan. Next time we will go in early April like Dai suggested. We would definitely hire Dai again!!
