With roughly 130 varieties of sake from all over Japan available by the carafe, Sake no Ana (literally, "the sake hole") does seem to feature a bottomless variety of the drink. The restaurant has its own sake sommelier, Sakamoto-san, who can help diners sort (or drink) through the restaurant's immense selection. Though most sake-specialty restaurants are open only for dinner, Sake no Ana is also open for lunch, good for those who want to space out their sampling of Japan's
unofficial national drink. The food is classic izakaya fare, and at lunchtime there are hearty donburi dishes, large bowls of rice topped with seasonal sashimi or beef simmered in a sweet soy broth.
