Pub Crawl Alley

Walk just 3 minutes from the West Exit of Shinjuku Station to find yourself at a retro pub alley. This area is home to 80 different spots serving lip-smacking drinks and food. The stores are lined up with nothing but a mere partition between each one, making for a long stretch of old-school drinking fun.
Since 1947, Shinjuku has served as a longstanding commuter hub and terminal throughway for goods and people. In these days, cheap ingredients like beef and pork “motsu” offals became a mainstay, which is why so many shops still serve yakitori and offal-based dishes to this day.
In addition to new shops opening up, there are plenty of veteran pubs keeping up the same retro vibe for you to taste and enjoy.

Highlights

  • home to many long-loved veteran food shops.
  • perfect spot for a night of barhopping.
  • retro city vibes.
  • counter seats available for patrons looking to enjoy a solo drink.

    非常有日本味的小巷弄,整條都是串燒居酒屋,也有像我一樣很多外國人來這邊朝聖。

    短短的一條街有7、80家的飲食店,而且設備裝潢有些老舊,通風環境很差,衛生條件有點令人擔心😓

    日本的朋友帶我去過一次,那種經驗真的很特別也很難得在東京還能夠有保留濃濃日本早期風味的地方

  • 陳錦玉

    白天就有許多店家在營業,不過都是一些比較簡單的午餐定食或是蕎麥麵店,而且有英文菜單給外國遊客參考,如果想要小酌幾杯也有居酒屋的店家

    有日本風味的小巷弄,每間居酒屋都小小的座位不多,點份串燒加啤酒價位也不貴,只是油煙味和煙味混雜空氣不好,回飯店後整身都是煙臭味⋯⋯
