After booking an apartment in Tokyo I learned that a friend of mine, who I met on my last visit, had opened his own bar only minutes from where I lived. I knew I had to visit.
I found my apartment, dropped off my bag, headed for Hedge 8. The bar is less than a year old, run by my friend Shohei and his wife. A great place.
Quite small, twenty people would make the place packed. But that’s quite normal in Japan.
The music was great, the beer was great. The bar was great. Most of the time I was there I was in control of the music.
Shohei likes cars, so the whole bar is filled with model cars. If you visit maybe Shohei will sit at the bar, fixing one of his cars.
Hedge 8 is a great bar, well worth a visit. The whole area around is also nice, so Hedge 8 is for a great pitstop for tourists.
