    bar Matsushita is my favorite bar in Tokyo. It is incredibly difficult to find and is the kind of place that only locals know. Drinks are very expensive ($60+ for two glasses of wine) but this bar offers a very unique and Japanese experience. It is guaranteed to impress foreign visitors.

    The bar is a dimly lit and seats only 16 people. The interior consists of three long wooden counters which surround a preparation area that includes a wood burning (maybe charcoal) stove. Conversation is hushed and it is unusual for anyone to speak in more than a whisper. A very peaceful place for an intimate side-by-side conversation with a friend.

    Foreigners rarely visit this bar. Please be very respectful and quiet. The entry is through a non-descript door with a subtle name plate that says " 松下." You'll feel like you are entering a private residence.

    There are no menus or prices. Just order what you want and expect to pay quite a bit. The bar master always prepares a small snack to go with your drink -- usually a piece of fish or a vegetable that is in season and cooked on the fire at the center of the bar.

    Details are only in Japanese but may be found at:
