Late Night Fun: Izakaya

Somewhere between a pub and a restaurant, an Izakaya offers casual dining and drinking in a lively, fun atmosphere. It’s where people go to catch up with their friends on weekends and after work, when a few drinks can turn into a great night out. These local favourites will make you feel right at home.

Ichijo (Shin-Omiya Station)

There are semi-private rooms for groups and a counter where solo diners will feel welcome. Order a few plates and try some different sakes. | Bars & Izakaya | Shin-Omiya

Yakitori Ichiban (Shin-Omiya Station)

Yakitori, essentially chicken grilled on skewers, is an after work Friday night favourite among the Japanese. Cheap and cheerful in the best way, this lively yakitori restaurant has a fun, retro atmosphere. | Bars & Izakaya | Shin-Omiya
