Izakaya are a quintessential part of Japanese drinking culture and a trip to Japan would not be complete without a visit to one. What is an Izakaya? It is hard to define but an Izakaya is often translated as a pub or a tavern but this doesn’t really answer the question. Izakaya are part pub and part restaurant and are basically places where friends or coworkers gather over drinks and food for a good time. From hole in the wall joints to sprawling chains, izakaya come in all shapes and sizes. However the best Izakayas are often hidden away or do not have English menus. Have a chance to visit them with a local Japan guide on this Tokyo food tour.
The food might be described as ‘small plates’ and can consist of everything from yakitori to sashimi to fried chicken or pickles and edamame.
Dishes are ordered and shared amongst everyone. This allows everyone to get a taste of everything that is ordered. It’s a great where to sample a large variety of dishes accompanied by a cold drink and good conversation.
