An izakaya in Shimbashi. Izakaya - 居酒屋 is a type of informal Japanese gastro-pub. They are casual places for after-work drinking. They have been compared to Irish pubs, tapas bars and early American saloons and taverns.

It was raining (quite heavy for japan). I use Pentax K-3 and DA21 limited for this shot. The K-3 has a very nice sealed body but for some reason Pentax choose to do the DA limited prime lenses as non weather sealed lens. Instead, they go for pancake design. Well, that make no sense for Pentax prime lens landscape, cityscape shooter to have a sealed body, Isn't it?
