No words, just a map:

OK, a few words; goo Ranking looked at what theme restaurants or bars Japanese might want to visit. Some of these restaurants are also popular with tourists and foreign residents, so perhaps you can find a new favourite in the list? Also note that some of the places have other branches in other parts of town or other cities, but I’ll leave that up to you to explore! The order of the places correspond to the rank in the survey. Have you been to any of the places here?


Between the 15th and the 29th of September 2019 1,396 visitors to the goo Ranking site and associated properties completed a public questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

Hey Ken…it’s been about 5 years since I checked your blog and only suddenly remembered it today.
Seems like you’ve only just recently gone inactive, hope that’s not the case ?
This blog is truly one of the classics and last of few standing in terms of Japan centric ones and unique entirely in itself at that…hope you’ll still be around.
