Situated on the second floor of a historic sake store, Sakagura Kai is a charming cafe in a 200-year-old Japanese building. It’s reached by entering through a stunning gate where you’ll immediately feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
The cafe opened 20 years ago following extensive renovations and began by servings dinner menu, accompanied by its own liquor. However, it now also opens for lunch, with meals served on low tables that are positioned on the cafe’s rustic wooden floors. The menu features sake bowl dishes using seasonal ingredients, with their signature item being the Kuramoto rice set that features salmon pickled with persimmon, Kasujiru (soup made with sake lees) and slow-simmered sake pork.
