Omoide Yokocho, Shinjuku - Back to the 50’s

Omoide Yokocho

Walking in the crowd from the west exit of Shinjuku station, you will soon see a green and yellow board written ‘????????堺┴筝? (Omoide Yokocho)’.

Omoide Yokocho (????????堺┴筝?) literally meaning ‘memory alley’,?is a narrow street with a cluster of small Yakitori bars, Ramen restaurants, and pubs.? There are about 80 in this small alley.
This street preserves the?atmosphere of the 1950s, when the area was a black market and food stalls were abundant.
