Kamiya Bar





Established in the late 1800s, Kamiya is something of a legend. It’s the oldest western-style bar in Tokyo and one of the friendliest to boot. The crowds certainly don’t come here for the decor (think Formica tables and too-bright lighting), but the atmosphere - loud, smoky and occasionally raucous - is typical of this working-class neighbourhood. Try the house Denki Bran (Electric Brandy) - a sweet blend of wine, gin and brandy that’s a lot nicer than it sounds.
