We visited Matsumoto back in March and decided to go for a drink before dinner. We found this place online and decided to check it out (as brand new fans of sake!) We are so thankful for the wonderful experience we had...we received the highest...level of service from the owner and it was a fantastic night. He was so accommodating and served us with the best sake ever! There were only the two of us and one other man (a local to the pub) and we ended up striking up conversation and having a great time together. We entered the venue just before it was about to close (so please do pay attention to the opening/closing times) but the owner still kindly let us in. We ended up staying well beyond closing time but felt completely welcome and at home. We even got free snacks! I cannot recommend this place more- from the service with a smile to the huge array of delicious sake.. we made the best memories there and can guarantee you will too.More

We had a lovely pre-dinner stop here! The friendly owner gave us a great introduction to sake. My mother had a great conversation with him, while I chatted to four friendly young customers. Great fun, wish we had more time to spend there.

If you want to feel the warmth of the Japanese people this is the place to come! The bar owner come bartender and chef is brilliant, offers great advice of the sake, and whilst his English is limited his customer service is brilliant. The local...patrons to were encouraged us to try new things and offered us some of their fried tofu, I tried 4 sake’s in total (would recommend the dry daishinshu kaze) and tried a number of food items all were excellent. A must do for a lovely lunch. Please note the opening times though are 1100 to 1800 so do not come in the evening as you will have missed the best place in Matsumoto.More

Visited one lunchtime for sake and bar food - the English speaking owner was very friendly and explained about the various types of sake. We tried the traditional local sake and a sweeter variety; both excellent. Bar food cooked to order in front of you...(some yakitori, pickles, sausage etc - and a very unusual wasabi cream cheese!). Definitely worth a visit if you’re in town - it’s near “frog street” in the old town so in the centre of things.More

We stopped in because the sign promised fantastic food and local sake and they did not disappoint! The sake is the best we've had in Japan and the food was so good. We ordered a feast and ate every bite. Then we got some extra...sake. :) Excellent service. Warm and welcoming. Highly recommend!More
