Tachinomiya, Umeda

"Tachinomiya" are standing-only bars. Usually a lot cheaper than a regular sit-down izakaya (Japanese bar/pub). Usually no-frills, and serving traditional, simple izakaya food. Traditionally popular at day's end for working men, there are some around these days which are perhaps a bit more up-market and trendy. This isn't one of them.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Love the perspective, the white in the upper interferes a bit with the eye, perhaps more contrast with the logos.

Hope you went in for some takawasa mate and some hot sake after work. I love these places. IN my old town I had a stand up sushi place which was the bomb!!! Love the repetition of the beer kegs.

@Colour blind: Yeah, they are cool places aren't they?

Great capture. Love the way each of them stands, which is all different.
