Craft Beer Station in Shizuoka City!

Service: Easy-going and very friendly. English spoken.
Equipment and facilities: Very clean and overall. Small but very clean washroom. Non-smoking!
Prices: slightly expensive but no charge. Good value overall.
Strong points: local craft beers on the tap. Various bottled beers. Beer pub food.


Craft beer is definitely witnessing a boom in Shizuoka City to the point that beer bars and pubs are definitely not enough to cater for all the beer-lovers in our city!
Fortunately enough Naoya Kojima/小島直哉さん has grasoed the need and opened his new craft beer bar, Craft Beer Station just within walking distance from the North exit of Shizuoka JR Station!


This beer-quaffing squirrel will become a collector’s item!

Located on the second floor of a building next to the west entrance of Parco Department Store it would be easy to miss but for that beautiful board!


Find the blackboard at the bottom of the stairs and start climbing!


Most of it in English!
6 craft beers on tap including 3 Shizuoka Prefecture craft beers: Hansharo (Izu no Kuni City, Izu Nagaoka), Baird beer (Izu no Kuni City, Shuzenji), and Aoi Brewing (Shizuoka City!)
No charge! No smoking! Cash on delivery payment! English OK!

The place, although a bit narrow is very convivial in its concept and it is fun to drink there with friends in very close proximity!


Plenty of drinks and food!
If you can’t read, Naoya will be glad to help you!
