Time Out says

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

Established in the late 1800s, Kamiya is something of a legend. It’s the oldest western-style bar in Tokyo and one of the friendliest to boot. The crowds certainly don’t come here for the decor (think Formica tables and too-bright lighting), but the atmosphere – loud, smoky and occasionally raucous – is typical of this working-class neighbourhood. Try the house Denki Bran (Electric Brandy) – a sweet blend of wine, gin and brandy that’s a lot nicer than it sounds.
