It's literally alley with small bars, restaurants where you can eat and drink at a relatively cheap price. The ambiance as you enter the alley definitely says adventure. If you like to eat and drink, you'll enjoy your experience. I found the staff of numerous restaurant to be warm and entertaining…

There are many historical shops that opened in post-war Japan. These tiny shops are always crowded with many people. There are plenty of eateries to enjoy traditional Japanese food such as Yakitori.

Omoide Yokocho Omoide Yokocho, a maze of narrow alleys close to the West Exit of Shinjuku Station, stands in stark contrast to all the bright and clean modern environs of the station. Tiny restaurants and open barbecue food stalls spill their smoke, noise and greasy steam over alleys hardly wide…

This is crowed with so many Izakaya and bars. Most typical image about Omoide Yokocho is everyone drink alcohol in early evening. Actually atmosphere is somewhat cheap,but you'll be addicted.

Smoke is billowing nightly from the yakitori stalls that line this alley by the train tracks. Literally translated as ‘Memory Lane’. Enjoy drinking here!

It is a shopping street where you can feel Japanese culture. It's so small, the neon lights are shining, and there are lots of bars. You can eat delicious Izakaya style food. It's a lot of fun, inexpensive and delicious yakitori! I really recommend it!!

’Omeide yokocho’ These gourmet streets lined with restaurants are popular for being friendly, delicious and cheap. You will be enticed by the appetizing aromas wafting throughout the area and red lanterns at sunset.

A tiny smokey alley with bars and other eateries serving skewered meat. The setting is reminiscent of scenes from Ridley Scott's film, Bladerunner. A walk through here is worth the alone!

新宿に行った際に観光スポットとしておススメしたいのが、思い出横丁です。80近い数の店が軒を連ねており、食事や買い物が楽しめます。どこか懐かしい昭和の雰囲気と味わい、人情を感じれる場所です。新宿駅西口からすぐの場所にあるので、気軽に立ち寄ることができます。お手頃で美味しいものを食べたいという方にもおススメです。
