They serve variety of sake and also Japanese food such as raw fish. If you have trouble choosing which sake you get, try "sparkling sake"! It is much easier to drink especially for those who don't know much about sake.

You can try some different kinds of sake with Japanese food. A cup of sake is around 400-600 yen. Also, have you ever heard of "Atsukan"? It's warm sake which is also common for the Japanese. Enjoy sake in the different way if you have already had cold sake before!
