Dagashi Bar. Shibuya, Japan

The name of this bar could be translated as ‘Cheap Snacks Bar’ and that is exactly what they offer. The interior of the bar is designed to have a retro, Showa-era appeal and offers all-you-can-eat snacks for the nostalgic. A table charge of 500 yen (about $6 US) gets you access to the goodies and any other food and drink you order are changed separately.

“Tokyo’s all-you-can-eat “dagashi” [cheap sweets] bar [...] [gives] stressed-out Japanese a chance to relive the good old days when their biggest problem was deciding between fizzy sticks and sour plums.” (via Reuters)

The bar is styled like a an old corner shop from the first decade or two after WWII, decorated with advertisements, posters, and other objects from the 1960s to evoke nostalgia.
