“hidden Gem bar opposite the Otaru canal”
It's very authentic sort of Japanese gentleman bar with every nice Nikka Coffee whiskeys. The bartenders are very polite, nice and helpful. They offer small bites too. It's a good place to hide from cold weather during the snowing time.

“"The place to taste current & discontinued Nikka whisky, direct from the source"”
Classy little place with friendly & helpful 'Eri' to guide you through your tasting journey. Very reasonable prices to fit any budget. Since Japanese drama about the family which started Nikka and the increase in popularity of Japanese whiskey's, it's become hard to find many of the drams you read a...bout. But here they not only have what you are looking for, they also have drams you didn't know existed! Tasting sets available. I'll be back, may even try some food next time. Only way this place could be better would be if Nikka opened up an attached outlet store so you could bring your favorites home with you!

“Great Place to have whiskey”
Nice place, reminds me of how a gentleman bar would be like in Hollywood (think Kingsmen). Decent selection of whiskeys, bartenders were extremely friendly and courteous
