Harmonica Yokocho

First built as a flea market in the early postwar years, this collection of alleys on the north side of Kichijoji Station is now best known for its many small but excellent restaurants, which began popping up in the late '90s. You'll also find grocery and clothing stores here, along with specialist shops for goodies like yokan (sweet bean jelly), pork cutlet and taiyaki (fish-shaped pancakes filled with anko bean paste). The bustle is turned up at night, when diners crowd the trendy standing-only bars and miniature eateries. For the complete experience, try spending an entire night bar-hopping without exiting the harmonica-like maze.

Super close from the station, the place, even if not really big, feels like "real" japan. The food is good and the drinks too, better speak a bit Japanese though if you want to fully enjoy the place and the friendly atmosphere. And if you get too drunk you can still have a walk in the Inokashira park ;)
