It’s been about four weeks since I got back, and it’s still surreal. I starting working and will start classes in about a week, but a lot of things still seem up in the air. Every once in a while I get hit with missing Japan and wishing I was still there or that things here were more like the way they are in Japan. Reverse culture shock my friends is no joke. I might write a more detailed post about reverse culture shock experiences, but today I will write about a happier topic.
So I wanted to explore as many cool bars and restaurants in Tokyo as possible, and my last week in Japan a friend told me about this fairy themed bar. After seeing her pictures I immediately I knew I had to go.
Welcome to the Iron Fairies, in Ginza.
It’s a basement bar so the entrance isn’t super noticeable. But it was so so worth the wandering around! It reminded me a of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in a way, with all the little figurines and bottles of glitter lining the walls. It is definitely more of a bar bar, and while there are some food options the main attraction is the drinks. I wish I had wrote down the drink names because they were all very cute, but these pictures will have to suffice.They were all delicious! and unique, which is something I like when trying out different places, because it’s not as much fun if the drinks are the same everywhere.
The website doesn’t offer much info apart from their address and hours, but I will link it here anyways: http://www.ironfairiesjapan.com/
I wish I had found out about this place much earlier, but I am glad I was able to go before I came back to the states. I will definitely be going again when I go back to Japan!
