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

      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.
