Yanagi-kōji

Street Food in West Tokyo

Yanagi-kōji is a classic nomiyagai (eating and drinking strip) and this one is particularly beloved for its nostalgic (read: crumbling) atmosphere. It's a narrow alley with tiny wooden buildings and outdoor seating under plastic tarps. Take your pick from a variety of options; expect food and drinks to cost about ¥3000 per person.

English menus are scant here, but you can always go with landmark Thai restaurant Handsome Shokudō, located midway down the alley.
