Izakaya Hanbey information
The Nagano branch of this izakaya chain, plastered with Shōwa-era movie posters and advertisements, is particularly cool, as are the inexpensive all-you-can-drink courses. The amusing English menu features such delights as 'raw guts' and 'raw uterus' – both for ¥70: bargain. There's gyōza, yakitori, okonomiyaki (pancake) and kushiage (grilled skewers) too!
