Pick from five reds and five whites – or work your way through all ten – at the friendly Risaburou, a standing-only wine bar and bistro where everything on the menu goes for ¥500. Close to Tokyo Skytree, this joint is an offshoot of the popular Endo Risaburou Shoten, one of the best wine bars east of the Sumida River, and deals in slightly altered versions of the original’s superb pâté and ajillo. Rest assured, all tipples are tip-top, and get this – the counter corners are even cushioned for cosier leaning. So wear comfy shoes and luxuriate in an evening of good food and good company.
