Uraya (裏や)

For all sake lovers, this is the must-visit izakaya in Ikebukuro. Uraya is a small calm izakaya located on B1F of a building, around 5 minutes walk from the east exit of the station.

They have a great selection of sake (over 150 kinds!) from all over the country which you can rarely find at other izakayas and restaurants. Appreciate the taste and flavors of sake with delicious, seasonal appetizers.

Ikebukuro Base

Ikebukuro Base is hidden and is probably the best izakaya for a date night. They have a calm and kind of elegant atmosphere.

Their menu is mainly meat dishes like wagyu (Japanese beef) steakss and chicken, but as izakayas offer a wide food menu, you can also enjoy seafood and vegetables. They also offer a variety of cocktails as well as sake, beer and whiskeys which go well with the quality meat dishes.
