Omoide Yokocho is rightfully named as it is littered with rustic bars from the 1950s. Anyone of the older generation will feel as if they stepped back in time to the middle of the 20th century.

Your guide will give you tips on how to best take photos of the area, as well as snapping high-quality photos of you along the way.
