Omoide Yokocho is a maze of slender alleys where you can find tiny eating Japanese places and open barbecue meals stalls.

The constructions are historical and normally run down but the meal stalls are very traditional. It is mostly crowded in here during dinner time because of Tokyo's office workers loosen up with a beer and a few sticks of yakitori poultry at the meals stalls.

I enjoy taking photos here because the stalls are one of a kind and it will give your photo a Japanese vibe.

Access: Shinjuku Station (3 min walk from the station)


While walking in the streets near Tokyo station, I saw restaurants under the train tracks, I was amazed because it is my first time to see that it is possible to have a restaurant under the train tracks.
