Sake Bar

“If you'd like to experience Izakaya, this place is one of the best Hakuba can offer. With a veriety of Sake and some traditional dishes, it would be an interesting night-out, to say the least. It's not a spacious restaurant, so reservation is recommended. Hot sake is something I recommend.”
