Taking place at an izakaya in Tokyo with a reputation for inventive seafood dishes, this dining experience features a classic Japanese izakaya dish that many foreign visitors to Japan have never heard of before, let alone tried. Though it’s not uncommon to have on izakaya menus, “ika no shiokara” is rarely ordered by tourists. This salty fermented squid dish is made by marinating chopped squid in its own viscera, and is usually enjoyed alongside a refreshing cup of sake. At this izakaya, Chef Hirata will show you how fermented squid is made, and you can even get a little hands-on yourself! Chef Hirata, the owner of the izakaya is a professional kikizake-shi (sake sommelier), so if you want to learn about sake, his restaurant is the best place to visit. He will introduce you to three different types of Japanese sake from his collection, which can be enjoyed alongside various snacks like tsukemono (Japanese pickles) and edamame. This dining experience also includes a Japanese dance performance! But this is no typical Japanese dance, it’s a whirlwind performance with traditional roots but a very modern execution. This surprising twist on classic Japanese dance is sure to get your heart racing!
