Sashimi


Located a short walk from Ayabe Station,

Rakuza is a great choice for dinner or simply a drink or two.

I have visited Ayabe City two times and both times I had dinner

with a friend at Rakuza.

My friend took me there and it was a great choice.


Salad and Japanese Sake


Rakuza is a small restaurant that can seat 10 people at the counter

and has a single tatami style room in the back.

Both times I visited my friend and I sat at the counter.

The food is delicious and combines traditional izakaya items

with a few unique dishes.

One of my favorite non-traditional items was

the bacon wrapped cheese ball!

So unhealthy, but so so tasty!


Fish and Japanese Sake


As a small local izakaya they offer a lot of local ingredients as well as seasonal dishes.

Rakuza has a typical drinks menu and offers a rotating menu of Japanese sake.

Both time I visited they had 6 different sake selections.

I love Japanese sake and the selections at Rakuza were very good.

Even for someone who doesn’t know much about Japanese sake

the selection was very approachable.


Bacon wrapped Cheese!


While the staff are very friendly, the menu is only in Japanese

so it is recommend to have a basic understanding of Japanese,

a dictionary or a strong sense of adventure when visiting.

No matter what you will not be disappointed.

The restaurant has limited seating so it is advised to make a reservation in advance if possible.
