AKABANE, which is in the north of Tokyo, has been a key area for transportation since early times. People gather, small factories stand, and tons of IZAKAYA (Japanese type of bar) open here. IZAKAYA in AKABANE is really unique, reasonable, and energetic. Interestingly, some of IZAKAYA open very early for midnight workers like taxi drivers or housewives to buy evening food. It is worth trying as I bet that you have never experienced them other than in AKABANE. I will introduce some of them whenever I go with our Airbnb guests. 

Unique point of this IZAKAYA

This bar has a name, MARUMASUYA of ell and carp. This IZAKAYA bar has a long history here and really popular to have a long line. But, again don’t worry. This bar also has a rule that you can drink only three grass of alcohol so that you will wait 15 min at the most.

As the bar name instruct, I want you to try KABAYAKI of Japanese eel.

And carp. The left pic law carp and the right pic is carp MISO soap. Very yummy.

Beef Tendon Stew is also popular menu here
