The warm, cozy atmosphere and friendly service are the draw at this casual Hokkaido-inspired izakaya. The cooking is home-style and simple, - some highlights have included smoked salmon with a crisp, almost crunchy skin, and lightly grilled bamboo shoots served with fresh katsuo-bushi. The hand-written menu changes with the seasons. Dinner runs around Y3000-Y5000 with drinks.
