Vowz Buddhist monk's bar

Who states liquor and religion don't intermingle? That is absolutely not the case at Vowz, a novel Tokyo bar run by two Buddhist ministers who serve clients heavenly mixed drinks, religious serenades and sermons.

There are over 10,000 bars in Tokyo, yet none like the Vowz, in the city's Yotsuya neighborhood. Opened by Japanese Buddhist minister Yoshinobu Fujioka, this strange watering opening has been carrying parts of his assembly together for 13 years. "They end up being completely distinctive professors here, the separation between them and myself diminishing,"the shaved-head barkeep states. "They are more joined with one another." In the days of yore, individuals might head off to Buddhist temples to standardize and have a beverage, however times have altered, and Fujioka chosen to acclimate so as to remain near the individuals. So he opened the Vowz Bar, a spot where individuals could go in and listen to Buddhist sermons and lessons without feeling obliged in any avenue. "At the temple, people are dependably decently-acted and mindful, regardless of to what extent or dragging the sermon is," head minister Gugan Taguchi states. "Here at the bar, they don't prefer my sermons —they stroll out." But on account of the benevolent climate and the tasty mixed drinks ready by the friars themselves, that scarcely ever happens.

There is no house band, jukebox or karaoke at the Vowz Bar. Rather, benefactors listen to soul-purging serenades and sermons performed by the bartenders/monks. It may not be everybody's thought of a fun night out, yet Tokyo's Buddhist bar has an extremely unwavering customer base. "Each day, my heart gets tainted by earth in the common planet, so I come here to repurify it over certain drinks and fun," states 42-year-old Noriko Urai, a customary at Vowz. Anyhow while some individuals come here to get in touch with their profound side and solicit from the friars consultation with their issues, others only love to their new mixed drinks. Bearing religion-enlivened names like "Burning Hell", "Perfect Bliss" or "Enslavery to Love and Lust" they dependably figure out how to get an exceptional discussion going.

While the Buddhist minister-managed bar may not be as irregular as the monkey waiter restaurant or the mesmerizing joint, its unquestionably a standout amongst the most novel venues in Japan.
