Many different type of restaurants can be found in Japan. We would like to introduce & recommend the most popular restaurant type called ‘Izakaya’.
Izakaya are casual drinking restaurants, similar to tapas bars, where customers order a variety of small dishes that can be shared at the table.
Izakaya’s menus are made of a wide variety of Japanese and sometimes international dishes. A typical meal will cost between 2000 and 5000 yen per person. Many of them also offer all-you-can-drink plans, which typically start around 2000 yen for a set time of 90-120 minutes.
They are one of the most common restaurant types in Japan and a popular spot for friends or coworkers to meet up after work and it is always jam-packed with salary men. Izakaya are easily found around train stations and entertainment districts. It’s a place worth trying.
