Kin-no Kura: Good Cheap Nomihodai Izakaya Chain In Japan

Nomihodai is the Japanese word for all-you-can-drink. Kin-no Kura is a great place for typical izakaya foods and free-flowing alcohol at a reasonable price.

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.

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.
