Kamiya is located by Asakusa and, thus, is easy to find. Opened in 1880, it is a real patriarch of Tokyo bars and still keeps up its appearances. It is crowded, filled with smoke and absolutely interior-less (don't like to say canteen-like) – easy to imagine pre-economic miracle Japan and workers having a drink here. The old chap closes 10 pm like a pensioner going to bed with sunset. By the way, they also serve food - a nice curry.
