Taking a stroll through the narrow lane of Shibuya Nonbei Yokocho is enough to give you a glimpse of old Japan. It is home to a number of small restaurants and bars, but instead of neon lights that dominate the city, its lanes are lit with old lanterns. Even though many places have changed dramatically over the decades, this lantern-lit alley has maintained its rustic charm. Visit Shibuya Nonbei Yokocho in the evening and you can easily drink the night away at one of the bars here.

Shibuya Nonbei Alley Reviews & Ratings

  • Historically known as "pissing alley" due to its lack of amenities for patrons who just have to go. The alley is made up of over 40 tiny bars that can fit between 6 to 8 patrons at a time. Some bars have a mezzanine floor accessible through a tiny attic ladder. They mainly serve bottled beers and limited selection of spirits. Beer food like skewers (yakitori) are often available.

  • Romantic and intimate at night. Definitely worth taking a few photos.

  • Series of tiny (up to 6 sittings) Japanese style bars in alleyway with warm ambiance. Prices are reasonable for Tokyo but be aware there might be a charge if you are sitting. I would definitively recommend the experience

  • This place is awesome. Just have a seat in one of these small restaurants. Be sure to venture in the alleys as the "main" alley has the most tourists. Had one of the best gyozas in my life here
