Starting out as an illegal drinking quarter in the late s, this narrow side street quickly became a prime spot for cheap drinks, yakitori and cabaret-style hostess bars. The atmosphere remained largely unchanged until when a fire destroyed most of the restaurants and shops in the alley. Visitors are hit with the smell of barbecue smoke and charcoal the moment they step into the alley.
One of the neighborhood behaviors that has surprised me the most here north of Venable has been how casually a pedestrian will stop and pee somewhere.

The year-old Dutch woman told reporters that all of the nearby bars and restaurants were closed and the closest public washroom was a few kilometres away.
It makes places stink, it's a bit crappy for people who live and work nearby, and it quite literally constitutes pissing upon the city we all love. But it happens. And you could probably do with knowing where it happens, whether you're pro- or anti-pee. So here are 10 alleyways where Dubliners flock, when they need to pull down that zip and pick up the phone to nature's call.
Anti urination devices were a form of hostile architecture installed in Norwich and the surrounding area in the late 19th century to discourage public urination. The overcrowded and narrow streets of the city centre and a lack of public toilets led to men urinating against the side of buildings, but the installation of new public urinals to address the issue was delayed by disputes over where they were to be sited. Anti urination devices were built in places which suffered particular problems with public urination, and were intended to discourage men from urinating at that spot.
You may not like it, but stale urine is one of the defining urban smells across the world. Understandably, many people hate this.
