The cuisine of Yamagata Prefecture is the specialty at this stylish upscale izakaya, accompanied by a nice selection of local craft sake. The sake is served in your choice of tasting flights or full glasses, with a number of seasonal specials available every month in addition to the regular list.

The beautifully presented five-part appetizer assortment, showcasing local seasonal ingredients, is highly recommended, as is the skillfully prepared tempura basket. And if you're exploring the drinks list, the excellent Yamagata-style pickles will go well with whatever sake you choose.

Local Yonezawa beef, one of Japan's premium wagyu varieties, can be enjoyed in several forms, including tender A5-grade steaks (Y3,080), beef stewed in sake lees, and minced-beef croquettes.

In addition to sake, drinks include a selection of fruit liqueurs and non-alcoholic fruit juices. Budget around Y5,000 at dinnertime for food and drink.
