NYTimes: 'Hidden Tokyo'
There's an article in today's New York Times Travel Section on 'Hidden Tokyo' bars and izekayas. Link.
Personally, I find something about the article to be fetishistic of Tokyo and feeds to the whole Orientalism cliché of the 'enchanted and exotic far east.' But notwithstanding this, it's worth a read because it mentions both Shinjuku's Golden Gai and the Koenji section of Tokyo (where I've spent some interesting nights, to say the least...).
