Kin-no Kura 金の蔵

Kin-no Kura is a super popular Japanese izakaya chain that you can find virtually everywhere in Japan. The storefront varies quite a bit, so look for 金の蔵 (kin-no kura) characters, which means the golden warehouse in English.
The main reason to go there is for the cheap food and drinks and the perfect izakaya atmosphere that is a bit rowdy and unpretentious.

Cheap All-You-Can-Drink And All-You-Can-Eat Options

Another reason people flock to Kin-no Kura is the all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink options at unbeatable prices. You can get both in the standard plan for just ¥3,500 for two hours. The all-you-can-drink option alone is just ¥1,300 for two hours. The price of a drink is about ¥400, so if you are planning to have more than three drinks, you should make it a "nomihodai".

Foods And Drinks

The food menu is heavy on American-style tavern foods with lots of deep-fried options than most izakayas.
The chicken and onion ring tower (¥590) is a really popular item. It also comes with French fries.
A meaty ¥590 pizza. How nice is that?
Chinese dumplings, or gyozas as they are called in Japan, are the perfect match for a cold beer. They are stuffed with ground pork and garlic. A plate is ¥490. An Asahi beer is ¥390.
On the lighter side, they have fresh chilled tofu served with grated ginger, dried bonito fish flakes, green onions, and soy sauce. This is surprisingly a good accompaniment to alcohol as well! A block of chilled tofu is just ¥190.
You can order sashimi assortments (3 kinds) for ¥590.
Yakitori (grilled chicken on skewers) is also a must-have izakaya food. They have assortment plates for ¥590. This is a really interesting item to order for those who aren't familiar with it because all kinds of cuts are used. You can get skewers with only cartilage or skin for example.
You can have a few kinds of salads for less than ¥500.
You can finish with their popular tiramisu jelly (¥390). It contains eggs, cookie, fresh cream, cream cheese, and cocoa.


Kin-no Kura is the perfect place for a cheap izakaya experience. The menu items presented above are just some of the many things you can order. There is really something for everyone there.

Kin-no Kura is also quite tourist friendly because you order from touch panels with language settings in English or Chinese.
