About The Rising Sun
The Rising Sun grew out of the dream of Jerry Hegarty. Back in the early '70s, Jerry was intent on creating a Victorian-style pub in Tokyo as authentically designed, built and operated as any in Britain. And when you visit us at “The Sun,” as the regulars call it, you will see how exquisitely he did it.
Most first timers immediately begin examining the pub's distinctively British trappings—the pub mirrors, pub sign, pewter mugs, yard-of-ale... and even a couple of chamber pots.
But visitors also quickly sense that The Sun is a lot more than just traditional décor—that it is a fine blending of a warm, friendly pub atmosphere with great food, a broad selection of drinks, and a cordial and helpful staff.
If you are coming in with friends for a special occasion, be sure to let us know a day or two before, so we can help you make it Really Special.
We look forward to seeing you soon at
