"Yakitori Alley" in Yurakucho

Casual eats Japanese style

By Louise Archer    - 1 min read

Yurakucho station is one stop south of Tokyo Station along the JR Yamanote Line. It is also next to the glitzy Ginza district with all its high class shops, restaurants and entertainment. One of the lesser known attractions is a little street known as "Yakitori Alley". It's underneath the railway tracks full of little tiny bars (yakitori-ya) where you can get a beer, some yakitori, and relax after a long day of sightseeing.

These bars are on either side of the railway lines below the tracks and are usually full of Japanese, occasionally a foreigner, but not so much.

I am an Aussie expat (ex Sydney, Perth, ex UK) living in rural Japan. Im very passionate about people seeing more of Japan than the big cities, which are wonderful places, but there are so many hidden treasures in the countryside and lesser known regions. For the three years I have been living here I've been keeping a blog called "Just life (in Japan)"  about my life in Japan, the places I visit and Tochigi Prefecture where I live.
