LINKS: Virtual Golf with a permanent 19th hole

One night, we had to visit Links, which is a golf bar. You knew the Japanese were golf-crazy, right? All the wait staff are dressed like caddies. There are little tables where one is served alcohol and bar food, but the main draw is that you can play any of the world's most famous courses. You use real clubs, and face a video screen and a battery of cameras which calculate the velocity and trajectory of your drive (or putt, or whatever) and then display where, on the virtual course, your shot has landed. It's expensive, but vastly less costly than playing actual golf anywhere in Japan, which may account for its popularity.

Open Tuesday-Sunday 5:00 PM - 5:00 AM. Really.

Directions: Roppongi
