Why locals recommend it
You’ll catch everyone from Tokyo’s Soil and Pimp Sessions to unknown musicians making experimental music, including free jazz, at this community venue. The industrial stripped-down room has no stage, so performances take place in the round, making it very intimate. If it’s a beer and background music you’re after, save Cafe Oto for another night. In the daytime, the cafe serves great coffee and Persian food.
