Kuro Neko BarIf you are not out to dance, but looking for a Gothy experience for New Year, then you might want to consider the [url=http://members.at.infoseek.co.jp/cbkuroneko/kuroneko/index.html][b]Kuroneko Bar[/b][/url] Countdown party. Aside from the master’s fine array of drinks there will also be [i]soba[/i] noodles on offer.

Kuroneko is the only Goth bar in Tokyo. It is a cosy little place like those small bars you see hiding in nooks and crannies of Tokyo (perhaps 16 people can sit down), but it’s dedicated to Goth. Lots of tasteful black and red velvet, and Motoki (the bar master) is always convivial – he cannot speak much English, but is quite entertaining even if you don’t speak Japanese. The regular fees are 1,000 yen seating charge plus the drink cost – so be financially prepared if you like drinking. The bar has had monthly soba nights for quite some time and often attracts musicians in the local Goth scene.

Kuroneko is open every day (I thought it used to be six days…) from 9 pm. The later you turn up, the more interesting things become!
