Have you tried Sake?? Sake is Japan made alcohol drink made from rice. Sake has been hugely popular all over the world and of course, it’s very common in Japan as it’s usually served at restaurants and Izakaya. I’d like to recommend you to dine at following 3 Izakaya restaurants which offer Sake in All-You-Can-Drink style in Tokyo!!
A lot of bars and restaurants in Japan offer special deals where you can drink as much as you like for a certain amount of time, usually about two hours. The downside is these packages often don’t give you access to the full beverage menu. While beer and basic cocktails are generally included, if you’re in the mood for sake, you’re generally restricted to whatever the house brand is. However, Trends in the sake industry in recent years are unlimited time drinks unlimited style. Moreover, recently, it is rapidly increasing shops that delight all the fine sake that contains rare brands at only 3,000 yen. Here is the list of Izakaya restaurants that I recommend.
1.Tokyo Sake BAL Anbai (Nakameguro)
This is a chain Izakaya restaurant whose branches are in Yotsuyasanchome, Gotanda, Kagurazaka, Futakotamagawa, Asakusa and so on, offering over 50 different fine Sake drinks unlimited time at only 2,800 yen.
