A minimalistic experience with a host that makes you feel right at home.
The drinks were simple and seasonal.
They had between 2-3 ingredients. So each flavour was clear and easy to recognize. We went with 6 drinks and I only disliked one of them. The rest were really great.
The atmosphere was relaxed and Gen was kind and welcoming.

It is a great drink omakase experience.


YES! Definitely come here if you are in Tokyo. Cocktail as an art! Like some negative reviewers said, the alcohol content here is not high, so this is not your place if you are trying to get wasted. But the way delicate natural flavors were mixed with different liquor was stunning. Throughout the evening I was in awe of the beauty of it all, which is something I had never quite felt with cocktails or just any type of alcohol in general.

Call a week ahead of time to book your seats. The owner speaks very good English!


Amazing omakase cocktail experience unlike anything we’ve ever tried! Came here from a friend’s recommendation and it exceeded expectations. Yamamoto-San really lets the fruit shine in each of his cocktails, and every single one was truly delicious. Thank you for a great experience on our last night in Tokyo!
