This casual standing bar serves a good selection of craft sake by the glass, plus several pre-selected tasting flights to compare and contrast. The food menu is surprisingly large for this type of establishment - mostly simple stews, pickles and similar sake-friendly fare - and there's a full-size kitchen and a dedicated chef in back of the main counter area. The assorted cheeses, particularly the Hokkaido-made blue cheese, are recommended.
