Still going strong after seventy years, Yoshiura exudes a classic old-school izakaya charm that's hard to match. They draw a loyal neighborhood crowd with their reasonably priced sake (mostly well-known premium brands like Kubota and Denshu) and good sashimi and other izakaya fare. Budget around Y4000 for food and drink. (No English menus or service.)
