I visited with my partner, and we were both impressed by the staff's attentive customer service and the deliciousness of each and every meal.
This is a store that I would definitely like to visit again.
5 stars is not enough...


Before the coronavirus, it's a nice kappo restaurant on the second floor of Komachi Street, where I used to go every month on Mangetsu Wine Bar. It's famous, so everyone knows it. This time, I thought it would be my first visit in a while now that the coronavirus has subsided, so I called to make a reservation. When I told them that I could no longer drink alcohol, they were unable to make reservations for people who could not drink alcohol. That's what I mean. I was feeling nostalgic, so I told her that I would visit if I could meet the proprietress after a long time, and that she would not be able to accept reservations, but that depending on the situation at the time, I might be able to enjoy the place until the reservation time. Unfortunately, all seats were fully booked from the time the restaurant opened, and we only had a few minutes to chat and say hello with the proprietress. I said that I would come again if it didn't work, and I left looking forward to the next one. Due to this trend, I refrained from visiting Mr. Ishii for the next meal at the restaurant. The Full Moon Wine Bar, which has changed from second month to first month, is even more impossible. sad. At the end, I told the landlady that I was having fun with her being teased as a mischievous bank employee, so I was confident that she would wait for me, and she said that I was really sorry for the harsh effects of the coronavirus. I was open-minded, so I would definitely like to meet her again. She is a great proprietress who really makes the Kamakura time flow. When I tasted delicious charcoal-marinated squid, I wondered if it was from the local area. When I asked, they sent it to me from Toyama. Chan-chan. I feel nostalgic about those conversations, and I remember how indifferent we were to other people! I apologize for the length.


The food, drinks, and atmosphere were very good.

The store's customer service is calm and smiling, and it's a good store.


The sashimi and sake were delicious.

This restaurant is located on a hard-to-find back street near Komachi Street, and it had high reviews, so I went there. All of the dishes are delicious and seem to be made to go well with sake, so it's recommended for alcohol lovers.

I went there around 6pm, and it seemed to be a popular restaurant and was full. I was told that they would contact me when a seat became available, so I ended up entering the restaurant around 8pm. You may need to make a reservation if you go. It's not a restaurant that has a huge menu, so you're limited in what you can order.

By the way, it was here that I ate rockfish sashimi for the first time. It had a chewy texture and was extremely delicious. We had about 3 types of Japanese sake. There seem to be different types depending on the day you go, so if you have a chance, I'd like to make a reservation next time.
