This Japanese food lane is right out of a movie

Aside from fine dining and expensive restaurants, you can always find good food on the streets of any city. Every city has many hidden gems that only the people who live there know about. Sometimes these street food places don’t have a lot of places to sit or aren’t very well decorated, but the food they serve is so good that it can give restaurants a run for their money. People are crazy about a Japanese street food alley that has gone viral on Twitter. This narrow street in Tokyo is called “Omoide Yokocho,” and it looks like it came straight from a movie set. 

The popular Twitter account @fas1nate posted the video, which has gotten over 4.1 million views and almost 195k likes. “Omoide Yokocho is a narrow street in Tokyo with more than 70 small bars and barbecue stands”, the video caption says that it looks like it came right out of “Blade Runner.”

Omoide Yokocho, also called “Alley of Memories,” is in Tokyo. It is at the west exit of Shinjuku Station. About 70 small bars or specialty bars are close to each other in this area. In front of it, there was just a single row of kitchens and diners. These hole-in-the-wall restaurants serve real food at prices that are easy on the wallet. A Twitter user also said that these restaurants are good places for people who eat alone to meet up and eat together.

The “replies” section of the video was filled with thousands of reactions and comments. “I love places like that in Japan. “They have some of the best food you’ll ever eat, and you’ll meet some great people while you’re there.” “Everyone is nice and open to each other,” one user wrote. “I have to go here sometime in my life,” said another.
