Retro Eating Alley

Shinjuku Omoide Yokocho is a unique Tokyo locale that features a post-war era alley that is packed to the brim with small yakitori restaurants and izakaya. In fact, the alley's name translates to "Memory Lane" (or known as the less romantic "Piss Alley" to some - don't worry, it doesn't smell bad at all) because it is styled much like Tokyo's alleys and passages appeared before WWII. When you visit, come hungry because you'll have a plethora of food and drink options to consider. From casual Izakaya restaurants to crowded ramen bars, you'll find lots of traditional Japanese eats. You'll be sharing elbow space with hungry salarymen in this cramped but welcoming foodie alley.
