Golden Gai, Higashi Shinjuku


An earthy taste of Tokyo's past that may not survive much longer the onslaught of development, Golden Gai is a a row of tiny alleys that contain some 200 stand-up counter bars. Each houses only a few, inevitably regulars as most are member only establishments. A traditional haunt of writers and other free spirits. Apparently much loved by Tokyo's photography icons Moriyama Daido and Araki Nobuyoshi. Posted by Picasa
