Featured in a cult Hollywood movie, this izakaya is very popular among foreign travelers. It is cavernous with atmospheric Japanese styling. The kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant, showing the chefs at work. Yakitori, or chicken skewers, is one of the most popular izakaya menu items. It is chargrilled and comes in sweet soy sauce or salt flavors. Yakitori and sake are a match made in heaven. Enjoy the best chicken you have ever tasted. In Miyazaki Prefecture, a scenic, semi-tropical region, renowned Miyazaki chicken is served in all sorts of ways, from chargrilled to raw. Head for a restaurant famous for Miyazaki chicken. We recommend “momoyaki” (grilled thigh meat), barbecued on a high flame. The fragrant smoke will tempt your tastebuds and with a beverage, the conversation will take flight.
