Izakaya Hanbey

Pub in Nagano

The Nagano branch of this izakaya (pub-restaurant) 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 are gyōza (dumplings), yakitori (grilled chicken skewers), okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes) and kushiage (battered skewers), too!
