Finally! I found one. It's called "Ebisu Yokocho" and it's actually, not just one shop. There's several all in one place! "Ebisu Yokocho" (Ebisu Street) and it's only 1.5 minutes walk from the station! Sapporo in Hokkaido has it's own Ramen Yokocho and there's Okonomi-mura in Osaka. Now, thank the lord, I've found a great and cheap place to eat and drink in Ebisu.
Ebisu Yokocho opened in 2008 and it really looks the part of an old, out of the 1950's or 1960's Japanese style drinking and eating establishment. Here's their webpage (sorry only in Japanese): http://www.ebisu-yokocho.com/access.html
There is now a reason to look forward to going to Ebisu!
I was only there for 30 minutes so I didn't have time to get all the details, but here's a load of photos for you and, as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words. Here, have a quick and fun vacation to Japan (and a location map):
View from outside
There's at least ten shops down this aisle. Lots of women too so that means the food is good!
My best friend, Michio
Everywhere was full of customers
All sorts of tastes
The atmosphere of Japan from a long time ago
Like garlic? They got garlic!
Hoppy and Haippi
I love this yakitori place!
Did I say ten shops? Nope. Nineteen shops shown!
I highly recommend this Yakitori shop. Easy to find too! It's called Kappa chan and it's the first shop when you step into the door on the right side!
