Kichijoji’s Yokocho

0

    Leaving Kichijoji’s station from its north exit, we face the -always crowded- shopping arcade SUN ROAD, where you can find literally EVERYTHING. This time we turn to the left before getting into it. I follow Nozomu. He gets into the tiny space that there is between a clothing shop and a drug store. It is like entering a different world. He doesn’t stop. We walk along a number of narrow alleys flanked by very small bars that cross the site. It is like being in a labyrinth! Suddenly Nozomu stops and I follow him into a local with two places free. I don’t think I could ever find that site again by myself and even less order something. The place is covered with yellowish papers listing what I imagine is the menu. Nozomu says most of them are drinks. I only understand the word “beer” and that’s what I want. Nozomu orders some food after asking me what I want. “Surprise me”. Since I arrived in Tokyo I mostly don’t know what I am ordering and when I try to order something I never get what I thought I asked for. Slight misunderstandings which make every day a new adventure.

     

    The place reminds me traditional bars in my home country, Spain.
