Travel Itinerary

Tezukuri Marugen (手造り 丸源)

The first stop is a one-minute walk from Kinshicho Station South Exit. Seasonal sashimi and other seafood dishes are available at reasonable prices✨ The shop also offers a set meal at lunchtime, but this time we ordered mainly snacks for drinking!

There are many “bottle keep” can be seen! It’s a service at Japanese izakaya allowing customers to purchase a bottle of liquor and have the remaining portion stored until future visits.

There were quite many customers enjoying a midday drinking!

Kaneda (大衆酒場 かね夛)

The second stop is a standing style izakaya, a three-minute walk from the south exit. It is located on the main street in front of the station and is very easy to get to.

The place was crowded with people enjoying horse racing in the afternoon, and kind customers gave us edamame and we enjoyed just being there✨

Umeshu (plum wine) 390 yen, highball 390 yen

Motsuni (offal stew) with croissants: 390 yen

Croissants with motsuni!? What a strange combination, but it is so delicious. The savory croissant goes surprisingly well with the motsu (offal)! I highly recommend you try it! The motsu was also big and satisfying.

Yagen Nankotsu (Chicken cartilage) 150 yen, grilled chicken skin 170 yen, Kashira (Crown) 120 yen

Personally, I find grilled chicken skin too delicious! The sauce is rich in taste and paris perfectly with sake! Chicken cartilage also has a crunchy texture.
