Tokyo's Goldengai drinking area is located a short walk from Shinjuku Station's east exit.
Saved from destruction by the devotion of its committed patrons, Goldengai retains the atmosphere and architecture of 1960s Tokyo.
A drinking haunt of artists and mavericks, author and fanatic Yukio Mishima is known to have socialized here.
Quirky, odd, ramshackled, bohemian and good fun. Enjoy these photographs of a Tokyo institution.
