Quite a few events have been organised in Shizuoka City following a concept a prepaid tickets allowing you to eat, drink or purchase at designated venues on some precise days.
They are very noteworthy because they allow you to sample many foods, drinks or purchase many souvenirs for a reasonable price in many places.

Thursday 11th and Friday 12th will see the MITETA BAR being organised in no less than 62 restaurants, bars and shops!
Have a good look at this homepage: MITETA BAR!

The system is very simple. For 3,500 yen buy a five-coupon ticket that will allow you to purchase a drink and appetizer in a bar or restaurant featured on the official list (they will have the poster pinned outside! during the night bar time between 17:00 and 23:00, or a designated food or drink during the noon bar time between 11:00 and 14;00 or a designated souvenir at a shop between the 11th at 10:00 to Saturday 13th.

Incidentally MITETA stands for MI/御 (Miyuki Cho/美幸町), TE/伝 (Tenma Cho/伝馬町) and Ta/鷹 (Takajo Machi/鷹匠町), the three areas in Shizuoka City where the event is being held!
