Otsuka Station on the JR line is wildly famous for their red light massage parlours and drinky spots with young girls... but on this night it was just drinks for us. Checked my favorite foodie website and this ranked very high! Had to check it out~
Its all a ticket system... the more you buy the more free tickets you get. Paid 2,000yen for 2,300yen worth of Tickets.
Large bottled beer 400yen.
Whisky Hi-Ball single 250yen or double for 300yen.
Ranked #1... Pork Hatsu Stir Fry.
Boiled squid with mayo and ginger.
200yen for a glass of Hot Sake...wow... cheap.
Scored a few McD lunch tickets from my friend... domo domo.
100yen for a stick of kushiage pork.
Everyone here was alone on this Weds night at 5:15pm... just people in need of a beer and watching Sumo on the TV set.
FYI Ladies... toilet is very old skool.
Today's specials... missed this sign board. Above the entrance.
Open til 10 or 11pm.
I'll definitely be back here. The ladies were so extremely friendly and it such an easy choice to enjoy Japanese food over cheap drinks. Ticket system is great...
The very famous Kadoebi Boxing gym is just down the block... a spot that has raised champions. A former massive K1 athlete Kyotaro Fujimoto turned boxer was training this night (guy in Pink).
