Tsubohachi: One Of The Best Chain Izakayas In Japan

Tsubohachi is pretty much on top in terms of bang for your buck in the izakaya industry of Japan. Here's why people like it so much and what you should try out.

Feel free to follow favy!

Tsubohachi つぼ八

From its humble beginnings as a small tavern in Sapporo, Tsubohachi has grown into a major izakaya in Japan with over 300 locations across the country.
Tsubohachi izakayas have a nice traditional atmosphere with tables that can seat groups of around 10 people.

Food And Drinks

Deep Fried Chicken

One of their signature items is their deep fried chicken that is super tender and juicy, with a deep savory taste that comes from their special sauce used to season the chicken. You can get a plate of nine pieces (recommended for three people) for ¥540. Be careful not to eat too many if you're watching your weight because a single piece is about 120 kcal.


As one would expect from an izakaya that originates from Hokkaido, you can have their some really nice sashimi. Prices are reasonable too. Small plates of one kind of fish are around ¥500 and large assortment plates of 5 (¥1,980) or 9 (¥2,980) types of sashimi are really worth it if you go there in a group.

Grilled Fish

There grilled fish is nice too. You might want to try their sting ray with mayo dish (¥380). This one goes particularly well in combination with a cold beer!


Finally, if you go there with quite an appetite and would like to try a bit of everything, then your best option is to order one of their courses. They range in price from about ¥3,000 to ¥5,000. You get some nigiri sushi, tempura, sashimi, nabe (hot pots), and many more dishes. Courses have free-flowing alcohol too! So enjoy some Asahi beer or so many other choices of cocktails, sour drinks, shochu-based ones while you eat your izakaya feast.
