If you rode a train in Tokyo and thought, Japanese people are so quiet, sorry – but you don’t know the real Japan!! At Japan’s local standing bars called “Tachinomi”, a subset of Japanese izakaya pubs, you can meet local people easily with just one word – KANPAI!!!!
This izakaya called ‘Tachinomi Fuuta-kun’ is Kevin’s FAVORITE and he goes there at least twice a week. It’s one train away from Shinjuku on the Chuo line at Asagaya Station, so when you check this place out you can have a chance to see and experience a new area of Tokyo that tourists almost never go to. They’ve got a ROCKIN tuna sashimi bowl and tons of delicious food and drinks for cheap, you’re guaranteed to get tipsy for under 1000 yen.
*IMPORTANT: HOW TO PAY*
This izakaya has a unique style of payment where they give you a MASU (Japanese rice measuring box) and you pay directly into it BEFORE you order. You can put in however much you want, and if it’s not enough for your order, they will let you know. They’ll put the change back into the same masu, so you can keep ordering casually without having to worry about paying again and again for each item. Please order directly with the staff – all menus are in Japanese so it can be a bit tricky but many of the staff speak some English and can help you order. When you go home, BE SURE to check the masu for change – if you want to leave a tip, please say so clearly (tips are not common in Japan!)
