After Work, Meet Up at Shibuya Station (South Exit), in front of Moyai Statue.
Moyai Statue, as well as Hachiko Statue, is the most popular meeting spot in Shibuya, and it’s always filled with crowds. So it might be easy to get lost. On the south side of Shibuya Station are a bus teminal and some modern, stylish buildings such as Shibuya Mark City and Cerulean Tower. However, there still remains a retro local bar district that looks totally unlike Shibuya.
60-Year-Old Yakitori Bar ‘Morimoto’ Has Been Leading Shibuya’s Bar District.
Morimoto has been attracting Japanese 'Salarymen' with their superb drinking food, yakitori. On the wall is the message in 'haiku' style, saying, 'Once you finish drinking and eating, please don't stay long and give your seat to next customers.' Fair enough. It's an unspoken rule at bars.
A beer bottle goes well with this unfinished wood counter.
Menu list part 1.Their specialty, ‘Tsukune’ (grilled chicken meatball on a skewer).
I order small size of ‘Reba-sashi’ (liver sashimi). Though the menu says ‘market price’ for this dish, I don’t care at all.
‘Myoga’, (Japanese ginger) This is awesome! Amazingly fresh!
‘Gombo’ (chicken-butt), usually known as ‘Bonjiri’ in most yakitori places. Juicy and not too greasy at all.
Head to ‘Abbot's Choice’ for Craft Beer
Once You Get a Little Tipsy, Leave the Place Right Away (Following the Rule above) and Head to ‘Abbot's Choice’ for Craft Beer. Abbot’s Choice, Shibuya. Young beer lovers flock to this place every night. It has some sister beer-bars in Tokyo. Ending today’s bar-hopping with their European beer.
The bar is getting crowded after 8:00 p.m..
Look at this smooth beer foam!
I want some meat dish! German Sausages, of course.
