Showa retro street where small counter snack / bars are gathered – ‘Golden-Gai’

There is an area where small counter snack and bars are gathered in the small and narrow streets between Hanazono Shrine and Shinjuku promenade.

This area is called Golden Street (ゴールデン街) and has been known for a long time as a place where cultural people, editors, theater related people, writers come to convene in a unique and social atmosphere.

The beginnings of the Golden Gai began shortly after the war. The old-fashioned town has still remained, it is a mysterious space where past and modern blended.

Recently, the generations of shop owners has changed and the appearance of young people who comes to drink here has also seemed to increased.

It has also become a tourist spot, where many western people visit.
