Mirrorman and Gamera welcome you to Toriaezu! Photo by Brett Homenick.
In my travels in and around Nogata Station, I've passed by a small restaurant-bar with various tokusatsu items on display. It's caught my eye more than once, but for one reason or another, I always took a pass and planned to go there the next time. Well, I finally stopped by today, and I must say that Toriaezu is a lot of fun.
No, it's not owned by a former tokusatsu star, and the matsuri masks are only there for the summer. But there's a wide variety of cool items on display as you sip your drink or munch on your yakitori. Here's a sample of what can currently be seen there. Enjoy!
