Jizake to Ryori 地酒と料理
We would recommend this place to people who are interested in discovering good sake because there is a free-flowing sake option that you can have with kappo cuisine course meals. It doesn't include luxury brands, but it does have many of the best brands of sake made by popular makers. At around ¥5,000, this is very reasonably priced. Not to mention that the food that comes with it is authentic Kappo (traditional cuisine of many servings of small dishes).
Nomisuke Ageya 呑助 あげ屋
This izakaya is the very best for deep-fried tofu called "Aburaage". Aburaage is never served piping hot, so the dish is quite a novelty. The tofu comes with different types of toppings including melting cheese and seaweed. The other thing the place is famous for is their oysters. Overall, this is more of a seafood izakaya. One of the best in the area for sure! Located near the train tracks, you can hear the sound of the train passing by while you eat and drink. This adds a little charm to the place too.
Baba Rokku 馬場六区
Baba Rock has everything you want in a good izakaya. It has a great atmosphere with a traditional vibe, the food has a lot of fresh seasonal fish and vegetables, they served sashimi, grilled fish, traditional stews and more. Basically, anyone can find something they like. Last but not least, the alcohol is reasonably priced and they have a good selection of mostly Japanese drinks.
Quite possibly the best izakaya in the area for yakitori (grilled chicken on skewers) is Hayashiya. They also serve motsuyaki (roast giblets) and yakiton (grilled pork). For the drinks, you can have sake, shochu, wine or cocktails. Hayashiya is a really good unpretentious restaurant! The best part is the authentic popular izakaya vibe and the cheap prices of their foods and drinks. Most people spend between ¥2,000 to ¥3,000 for an evening there.
Kome to Circus 米とサーカス
Kome to Circus is an awesome underground izakaya with all kinds of very unusual stuff. It specializes in serving wild animals, most of which are from Japan (bear, dear, bees) and others are imported (crocodiles, camels). They have a selection of rare shot drinks too! You can have vodka that comes from a jar with scorpions inside and shochu with a kind of huge Japanese hornet called suzumebachi. The items on the menu are more on the expensive side but its really worth the go for something out of the ordinary.
