There are around fifty sake to choose from at any given time, including limited-edition seasonal specials, and the staff are happy to give you advice (in Japanese) about what to drink.

The food menu is quite extensive, featuring seafood flown in fresh from Shiimane Prefecture as well as grilled meats and vegetable dishes. The attractively presented assortments of sake-friendly small dishes are a ready-made choice if you're here to explore the sake list. Budget around Y3,000-4,500 for ample food and drink at dinnertime.
