I’ve photographed this place many times — my favourite shot up to now being this portfolio one, I think. But due to the bar’s timeless looks and large array of regulars, the quest for a new favourite happily continues on.

This is such a cool shot. I really wanna go to this place someday! 🙂
Cheers. It really is the bar that keeps on giving. Definitely a place worth visiting too.
The last time I went to Kabuto (sadly, more than a year ago now), a fellow got so tipsy he fell off his stool! Although he was bleeding a bit, he went ahead and sat himself on the “righted” stool and proceeded to act like nothing unusual had happened. Everyone at the bar/eatery pretended like nothing happened… until after he left after finishing his drink, whereupon there was a great flurry of discussion and comic miming of his fall…. ;b
That’s funny. In some ways the ultimate Japanese bar experience too!
Where’s Mugwump? (Naked Lunch).
Timeless coats – must get one!
Good call. I’ll say just out of shot so as to keep that wonderfully odd image alive.
There is a great appeal to being a part of the regular community at a bar like this. The less frills the better.
They seem fewer and further between in the UK, even in a village like ours, where every brightly lit offering has a pervasive corporate branding, the same bland selection of drinks, and when there is food it is soulless reheated stuff supplied by whatever local caterer supplied the lowest bid.
In fact the only thing remarkable about them are the prices they charge.
Yeah, I noticed that when I was back over the summer. So many pubs have closed too. A part of life in Britain I really liked. Times change. There’s no denying that. But once gone, those places will never return, and its sad to see a once integral part of life/the community slowly fade away…
