I am not going fast anywhere with this travelogue of mine. I am still covering my first two days in Tokyo!!But I do intend to show you things not normally shown and that may take time.
An izakaya (居酒屋?) is a type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. The food is usually more substantial than that offered in other types of drinking establishments in Japan such as bars or snack bars, and may be compared to Spanish tapas.
I was told by my Japanese friend that such places were frequented by men who unwind after the stresses of work. A place where men drink "before going home to their wives."

Another very informative and interesting upload, Klaudio. This place looks so clean, as if it is indoors.
Keep going slow.

Lepo je iznenadjenje da si u Japanu našao novu inspiraciju, dragi Dado. Razumem da si pun emocija i utisaka i zahvalan sam ti što nameravaš da ih podeliš sa nama (ja koji ne mrdam iz Beograda). Ovu fotku sam pogledao sa velikim interesovanjem i računaj da sam te pozvao na piće, u pauzi izmedju dva snimanja.
Uživaj i ne posustaj, prijatelju.

I can see that you are going full steam with this series of posting, much faster than I can catch up with my lazy pace. Yes, definitely you are showing the side of Japan I have never seen. Thank you.
Interesting title which initially alluded to massage parlour and the like, may be its just my thinking. The man walking with his brief case concurs with your story. Nice exposure as usual. TFS from your travel.

great daily (night)life shot. The kanji characters of 居酒屋 izakaya are read jū jiǔ wū in chinese. The meaning is: live, dwell; alcohol, spirit; house, shop.
Thanks for sharing it.
