Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Doing Tokyo on a shoestring but don’t want to slum it drinking ¥100 chu-hais (canned shochu highballs) in front of the convenience store? It’s your lucky day – contrary to its reputation as an expensive place to party, Tokyo offers a wealth of options for boozehounds on a budget.
Your best bet for a cheap night out are the city’s multifarious ‘one-coin’ bars, where every drink is a pleasing ¥500 or less. These range from specialist sake joints and refined wine bars to party hotspots complete with DJ booths and wild revellers.
