Saiseisakaba is one of the most popular standing bars in Shinjuku Sanchome, a neighborhood filled with places to drink. A handsome and friendly staff welcomes passersby for large mugs of beer and yakitori grilled to order. Famous for its offal, Saiseisakaba’s English menu details items like testicles and uterus, but the rest of the list is in Japanese. Be sure to order the simmered cow’s tongue, one of the bar’s signature dishes. (Saiseisakaba, 日本再生酒場: 新宿区新宿3-7-3丸中ビル)
