Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

If you’re a fan of warm nihonshu and delectable seafood, there’s no better place in Otsuka than down-to-earth Edoichi, a traditional izakaya that’s remained a neighbourhood fixture for decades. It’s especially popular among older locals, many of whom take their seats around the counter almost every day and order old-school goodies like grilled fish, mozuku seaweed and squid sashimi. Prices are not exactly cheap (expect to pay around ¥4,000 per night), but both the food and the service are flawless, and it’s easy to strike up a conversation with fellow patrons (especially after a few cups of junmaishu). Finally, a word of warning to those who like their sake well chilled: the cold nihonshu menu is extremely limited.
