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. 

Grilled Fish and cram by BBQ style are called ROBATAYAKI and perfect with a draft.


A kind of shellfish, whelk and Horned turban


Marinated squid in the silver one.


A part of head of Tuna


Tuna Tendon Stew. This was interesting for me because cooks basically use Beef instead of Tuna.


Raw fish is also beautiful!


The restaurant front that reminds me old Japan.
