Spread out vertical-
ly over four narrow
floors, this old-
fashioned izakaya
offers fantastic,
very creative ku-
shiage - some of the
best we've found in
Tokyo - along with a
small but well-cho-
sen sake list. Picky
eaters beware though
- there's no a la
carte menu, just
whatever special
skewers they've
devised for your
dining pleasure that
night.

During a recent
visit these featured
some unusual items
like sukiyaki-fla-
vored tofu dump-
lings, cream cheese
with takuan pickles
and nori, and chry-
santhemum greens
with ground pork.
Other highlights
included the excel-
lent home-made ba-
con, chicken meat
paired with very
tender chunks of
gobo, and octopus in
miso. The first
round of five skew-
ers will run Y1200
per person, and
after that it's Y580
for each additional
set of three skew-
ers.

The initial round
comes with a helping
of crunchy raw cab-
bage on the side
along with two ex-
cellent sauces to
dip it in - a
garlic-heavy spicy
pepper dip and a
pungent wasabi dip.
Their bowl of as-
sorted oden (Y1200)
is highly recom-
mended as a side
dish, and is big
enough for two to
share. Drink options
include five or six
craft sake, most on
the karakuchi end of
the scale and all
chosen to stand up
well to fried foods.


The lunchtime menu
is geared more to-
wards traditional
tempura items like
prawns, cuttlefish,
whiting and seasonal
vegetables, with
teishoku lunches
priced Y750-1100.
Budget around Y4000
for food and drink
at dinnertime.
