A 50-year-old Tokyo bar still run by its original owner

At a youthful 24, the man below opened a little izakaya (Japanese bar) in a suburb of western Tokyo. A simple affair selling equally simple fare. And remarkably, 50 years down the line, they are both still there. Still with the same setup too. Only the faces have changed.

      Cheers! He was a really nice bloke, so happy the photo of him came out ok.

      Yeah, not expensive at all, and the hoke was excellent. In fact it’s the best I’ve ever had.

      Likewise. There really is nothing quite like them. And in a world where big chains rule, they are all the more special.
