Salary man gourmet

Every weekday at around 17:30, thousands of Japanese salary men make their way to Ga-do shita (literally meaning 'underneath the train tracks') in Shinbashi (an area of Tokyo next to the well-known Ginza). Ga-do shita comprises hundreds of tiny hole-in-the wall type establishments which specialize in anything from yakitori to beef gut stew to sushi to you name it - oh and of course lots of beer, sake and shochu. It's a really cool place - the food, while not of superior quality, is good and cheap and the atmosphere just fantastic.
