I met Hideo Asano in July, 2015
‘Hello. Excuse me? Are you Danish?’
I was sitting on a bench in Ueno Park in Tokyo nursing my hangover. Last night I had been to Golden Gai with a friend. We stayed later than planned.
No trip to Tokyo for me is complete without a visit to The World End. A wonderful little Irish pub located just across the road from Ueno Station. It is easy to spot, it is on the second floor of a bright red building.
The World End is easy to see
I visited the Warrior Celt in Ueno, Tokyo several times in March 2014.
Trains in Tokyo don’t run at night. If you are out drinking and miss your last train home you can take a taxi if you live close, or find another place to sleep.
A capsule hotel is one solution. Another is to find a bar which allows their patrons to sleep at the table.
