Nighttime in Akihabara
Dozen Izakayas in One Building
Izakaya is a popular type of restaurant in Japan where everybody at the same table shares the food. Usually, it is open only during dinner time because izakaya food is often followed by an alcoholic drink.
We picked up two restaurant buildings that have some excellent izakayas.
