Some famous Shizuoka Sake!
Service: Very friendly and informal
Facilities: Very clean overall. Superb washroom
Strong points: Shizuoka Sake of course!
At long last a bar that offers a wide range of Shizuoka sakes as a theme was opened last December in Shizuoka City!
And it is entirely non-smoking!
Mind you, since it opens at 5 pm, it is not always easy to take pictures outside or inside if you do not want to bother people with a flash!
It is conveniently tucked away in Takajo, Aoi Ku, a very busy place at night.
It also has the merit to be patronized both by ladies and gentlemen, mostly real Japanese and Shizuoka sake connoisseurs!
Ms. Sachiho Nagasawa/長沢佐線帆さん has shochu with her own label!
Plenty of sake on display but I know for a fact there are some hidden (better become a regular customer! LOL)!
There are only 7 seats at the counter.
No risk of a noisy crowd, although it might be a good idea to reserve!
The system is pretty simple:
Between 05:00 and 10:00 you must choose between the menus at 1,500 yen or 2,500 yen, all home-style food.
After 10:00 only drinks is ok!
A nice message on your paper napkin!
Now I like that! The sake is served in wine glasses for proper tasting!
Do confer with Sachiho San before choosing your sake!
All typical local homey food!
Sorry for the fuzzy pictures.
It was my first visit and my “camera” did not agree with me!
In any case I will come again soon and I promise better pics!
Stewed chicken and vegetables.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back there very soon!
I’m actually thinking of conducting some real tasting late at night there!
