A sake specialty bar with several Tokyo branches, Moto is known for their well-curated craft-sake lists representing small breweries from all over Japan. Here they offer thirty different sakes by the glass, with prices starting at around Y350 for a 65ml tasting-size glass. Unlike the other branches, Know by Moto is open all day, serving a lunch menu until 5pm.

The eclectic food menu ranges from typical izakaya fare - potato salad and a carpaccio of the day - to inventive dishes like seared beef with salmon roe and deep-fried minced beef with gorgonzola. Catering to daytime sake aficionados, there are lunchtime tasting flights (three sake for Y650) and all-you-can-drink specials (Y1000 for 70 minutes, available until 5pm). Most daytime patrons seem to order a small sake taster with their lunch, although it's not required.

The tastefully appointed dining area is furnished with a large group table in the center, a couple of smaller tables, and a ten-person counter. There's a small (Y380) table charge in the evening.
