Izakaya Hopping in Oimachi, the Town Only One Stop Away from Shinagawa, Tokyo!



Oimachi, Tokyo, is a vibrant district just one stop away from Shinagawa Station. Renowned for its accessibility, Oimachi offers a mix of traditional and modern experiences, including a variety of izakayas for bar hopping and easy access to popular Tokyo destinations.

This time, I went bar hopping alone, so I was a bit nervous at first, but I had so much fun! I didn’t even know there was such a great place for bar hopping just one station away from Shinagawa Station, so it was a new discovery!
Please refer to this page, and I hope you also have a wonderful izakaya experience in Japan! ✨

Travel Itinerary

Oimachi Station (大井町駅)

Arrived at Oimachi Station, let’s kick off the bar hopping adventure now!
I hope to enjoy a variety of delicious food and drinks!

Spot Outline

Oimachi Station, located in Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo, is a station of JR East, Tokyu Corporation, and Tokyo Waterfront Area Rapid Transit. Access is convenient as it is only one train ride on the Rinkai Line from Shinjuku.

Noyaki (野焼)

The first izakaya is here: Noyaki.
Conveniently located, it’s about a 2-minute walk from Oimachi Station.

The shop offers both table and counter seating, and in front of the counter seats, there is a showcase of fish!

The friendly and kind staff recommended that I order the simmered sea bream and tuna tail steak, and they were absolutely delicious✨

Higashikoji Street (東小路飲食店街)

Higashikoji Street is a nostalgic side street located just outside the east exit of Oimachi Station. The narrow alley is lined with dozens of restaurants, and is crammed with hidden izakaya shops.

My second stop on this hopping journey, ‘Niku no Maekawa,’ is also one of the shops in this street district!

Niku no Maekawa (肉のまえかわ)

It took a bit of courage to enter such a hidden izakaya shop by myself, but I was right ✨

It is an izakaya attached to a delicatessen where you can enjoy reasonably priced side dishes and drinks! This time, because I ate too much at the first stop, I could only have chashu pork here, but I would like to visit again for a drink in the future!

Niku no Maekawa is a ‘tachi-nomi’ style izakaya (standing style izakaya), located in Higashioi, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo. It is run by a butcher shop, so the meat dishes in particular are all excellent. The interior has a great atmosphere and there are no restrooms.
