Open 24 hours a day, this fish-specialty izakaya offers a wide range of raw and grilled fish and simple seafood dishes along with locally produced sake and inexpensive cocktails. The decor is Showa-era retro-nostalgic, with paper lanterns and old-fashioned wooden sign boards, while 1960s and 1970s J-pop plays in the background.

The lunchtime menu (served 11am-5pm) offers particularly good value for money, with nineteen very attractive seafood donburi options starting at Y583. If you're extra hungry you can add on side dishes like negitoro (Y138) and potato salad (Y97). Prices are only a bit higher in the evening, but the menu expands quite a bit. Specialties of the house include clams, scallops and other shellfish grilled in their shells, plus a large selection of sashimi platters.

Local sake, whiskey highballs and shochu-based cocktails start at Y399, and the drinks menu even lists hangover remedies (Y299). The average bill for dinner with drinks is around Y2500.
