Fodor's Expert Review Goya

$ Hirara City Japanese

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.
