After a long day of work, wearied salary men of Tokyo trail back to the comforting glow of izakayas, where they take refuge and unwind with food, drinks and uninhibited conversations. Echoing these nocturnal waterholes, Fukuro embodies a mystical ambience, whilst exuding warmth that sparks spirited interactions between visitors.

As a messenger of the night and a protector from hardship in Japanese symbolism, the owl icon manifests the outlet’s identity. The profusion of wood crafted by simple carpentry oozes an intimate and relaxed atmosphere for visitors to indulge in a spin on a quintessentially Japanese experience.
