I visited Lorelei again in July 2015
Lorelei lies at the bottom of a spiral staircase. I walked down and entered through the door. As soon as I entered the owner let out a scream and ran towards me. I stopped, put on a big smile. As she reached me she gave me a big hug. Just the sort of welcome I love.
With one of the waitresses
I visited Lorelei, a German bar in Tokyo, both in October 2012 and March 2014.
There is a wonderful German bar in Tokyo called Lorelei. You can find it in a basement in Ginza. It can be quite tricky to find, but offers a great experience. In lies in the west of Ginza, between the Yamanote line and Taimei Elementary school, on the way from Ginza towards Tokyo Station. It is in a basement, the entrance right next to a tobacco store. We found it by chance on my first trip to Japan, I have had to look for it on later visits.
