Lupin's fame - given that it's a tiny windowless basement bar - is mainly due to the astounding amount of literary heavyweights have passed through. Kan Kikuchi, Osamu Dazai, Shusaku Endo - they've all raised glasses here, along with a litany of artists, photographers and actors. Lupin has been around since 1928, and survived the Showa period and it is still incredibly popular today - go for a beer and check out the bar's collection of photographs of many of Japan's most venerable writers.
