Ozora Izakaya

Japanese Bar & Restaurant

Story

The history of the Izakaya began in the Edo period (1603-1868) when a sake merchant serving a few tasting glasses in a corner of his shop decided to start offering some local specialties to snack on too. Little by little, men got into the habit of spending time in this kind of place after work, having a drink, eating something, and talking with the boss and other patrons. The Izakaya soon became a popular place for people to meet up for a chat.
