The alley lining the elevated tracks near Yurakucho Station in central Tokyo is famous for yakitori (grilled chicken skewers). Having a few skewers and an Asashi with salarymen fresh out of their offices in the financial district is an awesome experience, and quintessentially Tokyo.Recommended for:

Yakitori = Grilled mostly chicken skewers. It's a great place for a happy hour. The skewers are fantastic and the beer even better. Go there around 7-8pm to see the locals relaxing after a long day of work.

You will find the Yakitori Alley under the tracks by Yurakucho Station. Make sure to go there at the end of the day so you can join the locals in their happy hour.
Take the Ginza exit at the station and follow the crowd in suits and work clothes to the small alley filled with Yakitori stalls.
Here you will find chicken, pork, vegetables and other misterious skewers (including tongues, livers, gizzard and other weird stuff), so take your chances and order the assorted one that will come with things you probably never had before.
Beer flows around like water here, so forget everything else and go deep into experiencing the place, it is totally worth it. By the way, the beer is the expensive part of the night here.
