OK Yokocho


Restaurants & Cafés


The slogan at Akabane's OK Yokocho is ‘everything that's OK to eat and drink’, and although that just might be a slight exaggeration, you will find around 30 eateries and pubs lined up here. With origins dating back to the postwar black market, the atmosphere here is authentic to say the least – think more dirt-cheap Chinese, izakayas and eel than trendy Italian spots. Most places open their doors early in the afternoon and get crowded soon after. As truly old-school spots like this are relatively rare in Tokyo, OK Yokocho is frequently used for film and music video shoots.
