Golden Gai used to be a black market district in the post-war era, but eventually mutated into a relatively safe collection of bars.

We had a couple of Gin and Tonics here, and a whisky on the rocks. The atmosphere was subdued, but as the regulars started pouring in, a sense of conviviality emerged an... Read More

  • Located down one of Shinjuku’s older corridors, Albatross blends both the traditional and modern worlds of Japan. Albatross is stratified into 3 levels, each much different than the others.
