Fodor's Review

The wooden walls of this rustic establishment are full of alcoves holding everything from dolls to farm implements to ancient jugs full of awamori (rice liquor). Partially enclosed tatami-style rooms offer intimate experiences, while the beer hall–style dining area in front of the stage makes socializing easy. There's live music nightly, and cheap, filling, delicious food. Tasty rafute (bacon slow-cooked in a mix of awamori, soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger root), and benimo (purple potato) croquettes should be accompanied by large mugs of icy cold Orion (pronounced oh-ree-yon) beer. Goya is 10 minutes from downtown Hirara by taxi. Call ahead, as it's often closed one day a week.
