Experience Details
Enjoy dinner and a show at a local restaurant in Tokyo during this Izakaya Seafood Dinner with Japanese Dance Performance. With seasonal fish delivered fresh from the market, this restaurant features creative cuisine that reflects the bounty of the season. The restaurant owner, Chef Hirata, is a licensed kikizake-shi (sake sommelier) and will help select the perfect bottle of sake for every occasion and palate. Stocked with high-end brands from small-batch sake breweries, you can enjoy the taste of delicious Japanese sake, alongside this izakaya course meal. One of the classic Japanese dishes you can look forward to is called “ika no shiokara.” It is a very traditional fermented food. An acquired taste, shiokara is made by marinating strips of squid in a mix of its own innards. Usually served in izakayas, this salty dish pairs well with sake! The main meal comes later, so not to worry if the shiokara isn’t to your taste. The menu changes from season to season, to ensure that guests can taste the flavors of the recent harvest when the ingredients are at their optimum freshness. See the meal example below for an idea of the dishes that are served at this izakaya. While you feast on the delicious course meal, you will be entertained by Japanese dancers. The musicians fuse traditional Japanese instruments and modern rock, and the dancers are just as avant-garde, with artistic divergences from the traditional Japanese dance. This is nothing like the classical Japanese dance and musical performances you’ve seen before! Meal Example: -Edamame -Salad -Fish sashimi -Oden -Stewed beef -Grilled chicken -Pickles -Rice
