    Izakaya pubs are an integral part of Japanese nightlife. Not only do they offer cheap beer, whisky, and sake, they are also known for their expansive menus that contain just about any kind of dish you can imagine. Yasaka Street in Beppu is home to many izakaya pubs, so you can try a few to find the right atmosphere for you.

    One of the most popular dishes served in izakaya restaurants is yakitori, a chicken dish cooked on a stick over hot coals while being brushed with various sauces. Izakaya pubs usually have things like yakitori, sushi, pizza, pasta, and salad on their menus, but they also tend to have a few interesting (or “challenging”) items as well, such as cartilage and tendon, for those with more adventurous tastes.
