Avant-garde performances of live Tsugaru-jamisen—the Japanese banjo—by young and promising performers and national champs are the main attraction here, more so even than the food. Jams take place evenings at 7:30 and 9:30. Arrive early to sit on cushions on the floor, in local style, and enjoy seasonal vegetables, sashimi, and such dishes as grilled eggplant (¥600) and grilled scallops (¥800). Although a good selection of Tsugaru sake helps provide a merry time, performers humbly ask you to be all-ears, if not totally quiet, when they play.
