Whether you want to sink some bars in a traditional izakaya tavern or explore the cutting-edge cocktail scene, the Japanese capital boasts a rich and varied drinking culture. Here are some of the best bars to visit.


Trendy spot The Open Book is a bit like a library where they serve booze. It’s a calm place where you can take a break from the bustling Golden Gai area just outside the door.


Whisky fans with cash to splash will be in heaven at Zoetrope, which stocks more than 300 bottles of Japanese whisky. Sign up for a tasting menu and the bartenders will take you through the country’s whisky culture.


Ahiru Store is the place to be if you are looking for natural wines, with the vast majority imported from France. It’s around 10 minutes’ walk from Shibuya station.


If craft beer is more your thing, Ant ‘n Bee is a great choice. It was one of the first craft beer bars in Tokyo, and remains one of the best.


Keen on sake? Try Yata, a 10th-floor, standing room-only establishment in Shinjuku. Order a tasting flight and you’ll be presented with a variety of different brews to enjoy.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
