Dagashi Bar : Where You can Enjoy Drinks with Dagashi Snacks

As with in other countries, there are various types of bars in Japan. But some bars are unlike any other in the world, in other words, they are very unique to Japan.

If I give a representative example of such Japanese bars, what comes to my mind first is “Dagashi Bar (駄菓子バー)”, because I love the old-fashioned snacks and candies that make me feel nostalgic!

Actually, “Dagashi (駄菓子)” is the word for cheap Japanese snacks and candies with a relatively small size for kids in particular.

Therefore, as you can guess, in Dagashi bars, you can enjoy alcoholic drinks, such as beer, Shochu and Sake, various cocktails and so on, along with Dagashi snacks in addition to various kinds of dishes, including unique ones using Dagashi.

There are several Dagashi bars in Tokyo. Those Dagashi bars have sometimes appeared in many forms of Japanese media, so they have become relatively well-known in Japan. The inside of Dagashi bars usually has a retro atmosphere as if the place were several decades ago Japan.

When it comes to the ordering system of Dagashi bars, for example, at this Dagashi bar, there is a cover charge of 500 yen per guest with which you can eat as many Dagashi snacks as you like for 2 hours.

But, as the Dagashi bar’s rule, you have to order at least one drink. Apart from that, you will pay for what you order.

If not only do you like drinking, but you are curious about nostalgic Japanese snacks as well, the Dagashi bar is a recommended drinking place suitable for you.
