The izakaya is Japan's most well-loved type of restaurant.
There is nothing quite like taking in the comfortable atmosphere, getting a little drunk from a good sake, and picking up a bite of the next great dish to come to the table.

We offer a wide variety of drinks including not only Japanese sake, but also beer, shochu, and whiskey. Our juicy char-grilled yakitori is especially popular.
Ordering can be as simple as pointing to what you want to eat on the menu.
We have absolutely no problem with guests who do not speak Japanese.






※All prices listed are in Japanese yen.

We have a diverse menu to accompany the alcohol of your choice, including grilled meat and fish, stewed dishes, and more. We also offer dishes that feature local delicacies for those who want a true Iwakuni dining experience.


Yakitori is a Japanese soul food made with chicken. It is a favorite among many Japanese, and it goes wonderfully with sake. The aroma of the charcoal perfectly accentuates the succulent taste of the chicken. We recommend our juicy chicken thigh meat skewers "MI" and "NEGIMA" which our skewers with chicken thigh and welsh onions. If you don't know what to order, get our popular combo platter.

We deep fry half-sliced young chickens until they are crispy. The juices that flow from a cut of one of these is more than enough to get the appetite going. You can bite directly into the cut for a luxurious personal meal or share the dish with friends.

Iwakuni is famous for its lotus root, and this dish takes advantage of the delicious local ingredient. Lotus root is very healthy and has a satisfying crisp texture. We sandwich minced meat in between slices of the root and deep fry them into flavorful delights!
