Yokochos are a unique part of Tokyo that amazes me whenever I go. They are basically a network of small alleys that contain an incredibly dense population of izakayas and small restaurants. Although this may just sound like a description of Tokyo as a whole, Yokocho are definitely an awesome way to try a lot of different places as each is so close to the next. The restaurants are extremely tight spaced meaning that only choices tend to be either stools or standing but the experience is one of a kind and definitely worth trying.
Omoide Yokocho is a great example of this and being that is right next to Shinjuku station it is very easy to go explore without having to go out of your way to do so. Although Omoide Yokocho is not the largest yokocho it is definitely one of the more famous ones and it seems that most of the small stores are always pretty packed.
The tight busy alley makes a great picture as well!
