Hidden in between and behind massive shiny high-rises buildings, Tokyo's old-school alleyways or "yokocho" are treasure troves for anyone looking to experience the city's less sterile, more down-to-earth side. Found all over town, Tokyo's yokocho host thousands of tiny eateries, pubs and shops, some of them dating way back to the early postwar years, and provide opportunities for slipping back in time to the smoky, change-filled decades of the Showa era.

It's always hard to replicate the real experience in a different environment. But when it comes to transporting us back to the small Tokyo street atmosphere without having to leave Paris, at Protected content it probably is as good as it gets. The decor, a steaming counter where a seasoned cook is busy preparing broths, red Chinese lanterns, kawaï soda, the famous welcoming “Okaéri Nasaï” yelled out loud by the team when you enter their restaurant... The food is super tasty and prices are very reasonable. If you love Japanese culture and food, this place should be on your todo-list in Paris.

So let's go there on the 2nd Saturday of September! The restaurant isn't very big and doesn't take reservations (keeping with Tokyo traditions), so I am deliberately restricting the group size. Please only sign up if you are serious about attending. There is a 2nd seating which you can find here: Protected content . Also, I must insist on the fact that you should be at the restaurant at 11:45 sharp in order to seize a spot at the front of the queue and avoid that the group gets split up too much.

Soreja mata!
See you!
