“Tokage” does mean “lizard” in Japanese but they are not serving it there, although it makes for such an interesting name!

Although they have moved address since, it was our second visit and we found it by accident due to the reason explained! Very beautiful but unpretentious decor. Very warm and comfortable!

They even have a view on a small garden you have to cross (that is for gentlemen as the washrooms are separated) when needs are pressing!

Young, friendly but professional staff who are happy to answer your questions.
They even introduced me to an izakaya in Susono City, Eastern Shizuoka!
