Amazake-yokocho
Amazake-yokocho is a street that stretches from Amazake-yokocho intersection, close to Ningyocho subway station, to Meiji-za Theatre. Named Amazake-yokocho apparently because the good old days saw amazake-ya (sweet sake shops) all around its main entrance, the name remains although many of the original shops have long since vanished. Long-term and well-established shops line the street nowadays and along its length can be felt the atmosphere of shitamachi.
