Where to start? Firstly there was a bit of a 'wow' as we walked in. The atmosphere was great and the room was very stylish. Although the bar was smaller than we expected, it gave a more personal experience. The bar staff were spot on,...More

We had an excellent bartender who made us cocktails using Japanese liqueurs we couldn't find in the States. Very cool selection and friendly bartenders! We paid about $25 per drink, which was expensive but not outrageous. Nice spot for a drink in Ginza!

This is one of the best bars on the planet. It has awards to back that up, but it doesn't need them. At every juncture, they choose the best quality ingredients, some handmade in-house, and prepare them with proven, old-school techniques. But I don't go...More

We were sent the Bar High Five by a former bar manager/mixologist whiskey expert. He told us the proprietor was a lovely man and an amazing cocktail master and he was right. This is not a bar for a raucous party. One of the highlights...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
