The best selection of artisanal sakes that I've ever seen. The selection of sakes is carefully chosen by the master of the house - Narita-san. He speaks good English... More

One of my very favorite bars anywhere in the world. The very best sake with expert guidance from the very warm and friendly owner of the bar. The whole staff is fantastic as is the cooking.
