Kamiya Bar is the first bar to open in Japan. The bar was started by Denbei Kamiya in 1880. The signature cocktail, the “Denki Buran,” was created here more than 120 years ago. The current building, which was built in 1921, is considered as an Asakusa landmark and is designated as a national tangible cultural property. The bar makes appearances in famous Japanese novels such as Osamu Dazai's “Ningen Shikkaku,” or “No Longer Human” and Masuji Ibuse's “Kakemochi.” It is a place to visit when you want to immerse yourself in Asakusa's downtown culture.
