Izakaya is a store we can drink and eat.
It is one of a stile of bar.
Japanese generaly stile place to go to drink.
The diffirent point from other bars stile is Izakaya useurly have some rooms or some box seats.
Generally adult people in Japan often go to drink with some friends or some fellow workers after their job.
After drinking there,somedody go home,somebody next Izakaya,somebody karaoke, somebody go to love hotels.
In the case, they prefer drink in close space there like a family.
Many Izakaya have rich menu of foods and drinks. And the prices are so cheep.
The rich many options is favorite system of Izakayas.
I love Izakaya.
Little Tokyo may have also Izakaya.
I know Galleria,Almeda & 3rd,shoping mall have Izakaya,on 3F.
But I didn`t go there.
Because I felt the izakaya was too expensive.
i hope your happy asia trip and funy time in birthday 19th.
