Dagashi Bar is known for their entertaining snack buffet that offers old-style Japanese snacks called dagashi. They have already opened several branches in Tokyo, starting with their shop in Ebisu back in 2003.
Their latest branch, the Shinjuku Dagashi Bar in Shinjuku, is the biggest one yet. Designed to look like an establishment from the Japanese Showa era, and with nostalgic music called Kayo-kyoku to match, Shinjuku Dagashi Bar will transport you back in time.
What’s unique about this branch is that it houses another shop called Dagashi Shop Hiyoko. Surrounded by a retro townscape, the shop within a shop has everything from old nostalgic dagashi to the latest ones. In total, there are more than 100 kinds of popular dagashi which you can eat as much as you want of.
In addition, they also offer other food items such as nostalgic Japanese dishes, school meals, dishes with dagashi and izakaya meals (which are suitable for drinking in an izakaya, where Japanese drink alcohol easily and readily with colleagues).
It’s definitely a unique way to experience Japan. Why don’t you try an unreal experience at old nostalgic Dagashi bar?
