A Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant, Sasagin is known for its selection of artisanal sake and innovative dishes. Take a seat at the counter to get pairing recommendations from the sommelier, who chooses from a meticulously curated list of drinks. Sample some of the stand-outs like the ochazuke (お茶漬け, rice in green tea) and vinegared mackerel; or opt for an omakase (お任せ, “I’ll leave it up to you,” a meal made of dishes chosen by the chef) to discover Sasagin’s best!
Sink your teeth in succulent Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉, Japanese for “grilled meat”) at Ooyodoya. The slivers of meat are expertly chosen and lovingly laid on the grill. The fires caress and lick at the steaks until they’re just the right state. After a long day, steak with girls is just what the doctor ordered.
Put on a brave face to survive the eerie gimmicks of horror-themed Yurei. To summon the Japanese ghost waitress, strike the Buddhist prayer bowl and wave the bloody severed hand. Get the Cremation Pyre Spareribs, which is brought on a sizzling plate, then doused with alcohol for a fiery show! Wear a costume during your visit (a wacky hat will do) and you might just charm the undead for some free dessert!
