YOYOGI PARK: Okinawa Matsuri (Festival) 2017... Went to see Kazufumi Miyazawa sing Shima Uta.

Orion draft beers were like 600 yen for a tiny cup so I bought my own 200 yen cans of beer to the event.  Not necessary to buy drinks from the stands in the open free space.

Lots of food stands with Okinawan favorites like Taco Rice.

Day 2 is May 21st and I'll check out the evening musicians.

YOYOGI: TekeTeke Izakaya... B1 Basement but it was so spacious and clean... great spot for 195 draft beers!

So after Nagiya I met with a co-worker for a few beers at Teke Teke franchise Izakaya.

This is their automatic Otoshi.. fresh cabbage with ponzu seasoning.

Chicken roll with Gyoza filling inside. 

Draft Beers only 195 yen!

If you need an easy clean izakaya right next to Yoyogi Station then for sure hit up Teke Teke... a few beers and appetizers later it was only 2,500 yen that included 7 draft beers! There are no counter seats but I think you can go alone too.

YOYOGI: Nagiya Yakitori after work... very very old converted home and the food was so nice!

Thursday night and I had the next day off... to go home or explore a new yakitori spot with a counter seating for just me.  Nagiya has about 5 counter seats and decided to head in.

Lots of Yakitori items but lacked my favorite bonjiri

Picture menu!  Just point and let them know how many you want.

The chef hard at work... on a very cool evening this guy was a sweaty mess.
Hot yakitori grill that blew smoke outside so it was not smelly inside.

Of course had to have the motsu-nikomi.
Choice of tofu or raddish... went for the tofu.
Soooo super tasty with very tender meat.

Next up mini tomatoes... love it better when wrapped in bacon.

180yen per shrimp! So tasty... yum



Fish Cheeks... super tender and so so tasty.

Really wanted to eat this Kimchee Motsu Nabe but starts from 2 portions.

If you are a lone diner and need a spot to enjoy some tasty yakitori with friendly staff then you can't beat this spot.  I will surely go back again!
