Kanazawa: Izakaya
Open 3-11pm (LO). Closed Sundays.

If you love sake, Daigo should be your first stop in Kanazawa. Hundreds of bottles are stocked in the wall of refrigerators behind the counter, including limited-edition and seasonal selections from sought-after breweries like Aramasa and Juyondai.

The compact food menu is relatively simple, with a good selection of local seafood and sake-friendly dishes like cucumbers with miso paste, stuffed lotus root and grilled duck. Everything is well prepared, artfully presented, and well-suited to sake.

Budget around Y4,000-7,000 for ample food and drink.
