Going against the tradition of snaku, or little Japanese bars that are usually infested with men, the awkwardly transliterated Raimraito (7F Shin Maruouchi Bldg, 1-5-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku; www.raimuraito.jp) was created for women to enjoy a drink without any lone men perving all over them. Photojournalist and snaku-obsessive Kyoichi Suzuki opened this lush red lounge-style bar to fill a perceived hole in the market, using a typical snaku name, replacing the usual hostesses with besuited waiters, and installing celebrity transvestite Mitz Mangrove as the mama-san. Table charge ¥1,000; men permitted in company of women only.
