A proud member of the ever-growing Moto group of sake-tasting bars, Sobamae offers a well-curated list of craft sake, with plenty of seasonal, limited-edition specials. And for your dining pleasure, the kitchen specializes in tempura - we enjoyed some nicely prepared hamo eel and corn-onion kakiage during an early-summer visit - along with soba, sashimi and small sake-drinking delicacies.

The dining area is split into two fairly spacious counter areas and a handful of tables, with a minimalist modern decor that's more stylish than your typical sake-drinking establishment. Service is friendly, and the staff are always ready to offer advice on your drinks options. Budget around Y5000 for food and drink in the evening or Y1000 at lunchtime.
