Kurobei Yokocho 黒塀横丁

In search of late-night eats at Tokyo Staton

For those seeking sustenance after alighting at Tokyo Station, you can find an array of eateries and bars without need to look beyond the station itself. Head down to the basement floor on the Marunouchi side of the station to find Kurobei Yokocho, which offers among others: Chinese, Japanese and Western cuisine. The name translates as “black fence alley”, and you will know you are in the right place once you spot the black façades of this row of restaurants. Kurobei Yokocho maintains a chic atmosphere unusual for a train station arcade, and comes alive after dark.
