Kamiya Bar

Bar in Asakusa & Sumida River

Kamiya is one of Tokyo’s oldest bars (open since 1880) and still hugely popular – thanks largely to the one-litre dai-jokki (大ジョッキ; 'big cups') of Asahi lager that cost only ¥1120. But the more interesting thing to order is the house 'Denki Bran' (¥380), a century-old secret mix of brandy, gin, wine, curaçao and medicinal herbs. Order from the counter reception counter.
