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. 

Not just Yakitori but smoked Yakitori. Smoking is the process of flavoring, browning, cooking, or preserving food by exposing it to smoke from burning or smoldering material, most often wood.

Do you know Hoppy, again?

Hoppy (ホッピー Hoppii) is a beer-flavored almost non-alcoholic drink (0.8% alcohol) that Kokuka Beverage Company began producing and selling in Japan in 1948; it is currently most available in and associated with Tokyo. Hoppy is an alcohol that reminds Japanese old good days.
